Abstract
The determination of the recognition of visual targets in a driver's forward field of view which is primarily foveal vision is rather straight forward. The driver sights an object, recognizes it as an obstacle to be avoided, a passive object, or something which provides information. A number of studies have determined the scan patterns of drivers, how he sights objects during the day and night and how effectively he can use the visual input to help him avoid obstacles and remain in his lane. SAE Recommended Practices and Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards are considered when determining the area of forward visibility to be kept unobstructed in order for the driver to view important forward targets.
