During the coronavirus closedown, experts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Lighting Research Center have been making videos about the future of lighting in a post-COVID world.
Renowned vehicle lighting researcher John Bullough recently put up a video about headlighting, drawing on his experience driving at night in today’s dramatically reduced traffic. It’s well worth a watch, for he raises an interesting idea: could the unusual temporary conditions of the pandemic get people better acquainted with their under-used high beams? And could that new familiarity have other beneficial knock-on effects? Watch John’s video and share your thoughts with him and with us—let’s get a conversation going!
There’s a new video being added every day for the next couple of weeks; the whole series can be found at the LRC’s YouTube channel.
