Moving and Manoeuvring

Moving and manoeuvring is difficult, and it’s no surprise that humans have evolved all sorts of specific mechanisms to help with our movement, navigation, and orientation. We have a finely developed proprioception – the sense that lets you know where different parts of your body are in relation to each other. It helps you stay...

Foggy Mirror

Even though the solstice is past, we’re still well in the middle of winter, and the nights are far longer than the days.

Misty Weather

With the change of seasons, and the cooler weather, condensation and misty weather is becoming a problem. It’s easy to come back to your car or other vehicle and find your windscreens, windows and mirrors all misted over, and waiting for your demister to make things fully visible again can take a long time.

Driving in the Dark

Now that we’re rolling around to winter, and the days are getting shorter, we’re all going to be doing a lot more driving in the dark. That means impaired visibility, and night-time is one of those situations where rear view mirrors and wing mirrors don’t work very well. Either it’s so dark that you can...

Reduced Visibility
