Construction and testing of prototype systems to identify possible improvements in lighting of motor vehicles and the extent to which regulations should be amended to permit them.
Present lighting regulations for passenger cars and freight vehicles are fairly restrictive. There is a danger that, as technology moves on, regulations formulated for an older technology will inhibit the development of better techniques. For instance, for both passenger cars and freight vehicles, the brake light system seems to have a potential for more sophistication. The warning should be earlier and more visible and it should make it possible to differentiate between high and low deceleration braking.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
