Vision is said to account for 80% of the information acquired of the five human senses. The presentation of light is an effective way to convey visual information. A blinking presentation especially attracts attention. A low-vision person acquires peripheral information through residual vision. In this case, light effectively supports the travel of low-vision persons. A blinking light stimulates more than a continuous light. However, a blinking light is not sufficiently compatible with the
