Increasing Powered Two-Wheels' (PTWs') Detectability by Using Phi-Phenomenon

The current study evaluates the potential of a unique and novel display of two helmet-mounted lights that blink in an alternating manner to create movement illusion to increase powered two-wheels' (PTWs') conspicuity and visibility. The study includes two experiments to evaluate this blinking light system (BLS): in the first experiment we evaluate whether the conspicuity of PTWs to un-alerted viewers is increased by the BLS. In the second experiment we evaluate BLS' effects on the PTW's visibility to alerted viewers. Alerted and unalerted refer to the viewers' prior cueing to search for a PTW.
