Adapting Test Strategies for Adaptive Beam Headlights

Don’t Be Blinded When It Comes to Testing New Technology

Traditionally headlamps have formed a compromise between properly illuminating the road and blinding other drivers. While the Upper Beam (Driving Beam, or High Beam) provides good forward lighting, they can be uncomfortably bright for oncoming drivers creating a potentially hazardous situation. Lower Beam (Passing Beam, or Low Beam) offers reduced brightness but typically a safer level for those sharing the road.

Adaptive driving beams incorporate technology that essentially removes the compromise between glare and illumination by eliminating the driver’s need to frequently switch between lower and upper beams. This technology automatically recognizes the lighting need and provides improved response time to pedestrians, animals, and other unexpected objects in the roadway. Additionally, it is of great importance to the future of mobility by contributing to a more controlled optical environment for camera-based sensor technologies used for automated vehicles.

But, as with all new technology, there are questions about how to adapt your testing program to accomplish the goals, as well as meet applicable standards. During this webinar, we will touch on a variety of topics, including:

  • What are Adaptive Driving Beams and how will they effect the future of mobility?
  • What is SAE J3069?
  • Alternative and Upcoming Regulations
  • And more…
