Visual Information

 Creating a comfortable society through a better light environment

In designing lighting equipment, our focus is shifting from merely achieving a certain level of brightness to providing high-quality lighting that brings comfort to the people. For instance, visual signals and signs are required to effectively function even under low visibility, such as during fog and when traveling at high speed. Moreover, it is required to fit to the surrounding lighting environment. Therefore, our laboratory is conducting research on the visual characteristics of the people.
