English abstract:
1.3 billion people worldwide are affected by vision impairments, according to the World Health Organization. However, vision im-pairments are hardly ever taken into account when we design our cities, buildings, emergency signposting, or lighting systems. With this research, we want to develop realistic, medically based simula-tions of eye diseases in VR and AR, which allow calibrating vision impairments to the same level for different users. This allows us to conduct user studies with participants with normal sight and graphically simulated vision impairments, to determine the effects of these impairments on perception, and to investigate lighting concepts under impaired vision conditions. This thesis will, for the first time, provide methods for architects and designers to evaluate their designs for accessibility and to develop lighting systems that can enhance the perception of people with vision impairments.
