Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel transmission-type visibility meter which is also named double reflection transmission-type visibility meter is introduced and developed. The novel visibility meter uses a charge coupled device (CCD) as an image acquiring unit, the CCD acquires light spot images which generated by a light source, an air extinction coefficient is calculated, and then the meteorology visibility is obtained. The light source is an important unit in this novel visibility meter, and influences the meteorology visibility calculation results. In this paper, several light source design schemes are proposed and researched. Each light source scheme is tested and the experimental results are analyzed. Finally the novel visibility meter which employs a determined light source design scheme finished a measurement result comparison experiment and the reliability and accuracy of the visibility meter are proved.
