Abstract

Outdoor lighting is a rapidly growing market for LED luminaires. LEDs have the potential to efficiently provide more uniform illumination compared with conventional high-intensity discharge (HID) luminaires. Improving the uniformity is expected to result in better occupant acceptance and ratings of safety and visibility, potentially allowing for reductions in light level and energy use. The LRC performed a demonstration to test the relationship between uniformity and occupant acceptance in parking lots.
