Abstract

The article contains results of the research on the assessment of the blue light retinal hazard by lighting devices used in the automotive with LED light sources. The study was subject to daytime running lights and work lamps available on the market for self-assembly in vehicles. The study method was presented using a matrix luminance meter and spectroradiometer. The necessary photometric and radiometric tests were carried out. Assessment of blue light hazard according to the PN-EN 62471: 2010 was made. Obtained results were referred to maximum luminous intensity, chromaticity coordinates and correlated colour temperature of tested devices.
