Visual perception continues to be a critical aspect of overall driver performance. This session welcomes paper offers highlighting new developments designed to provide better support for driver rearward vision, better understanding of how to measure light and its effects on drivers’ eyes, and better understanding of how drivers accomplish the visually difficult task of negotiating intersections.
LED technology advancement continues in the past year. This leads to broader lighting applications. The latest studies presented in this session cover design strategy, thermal management and reliability related testing. Other topics in this session also centered on continuing improvement for lighting performance and product safety.
Automotive glazing, while remaining a somewhat stable part of vehicle design, is contributing to passenger comfort in new ways, and is subject to an ever-expanding web of regulation around the world.
The scope of the Wiper System session encompasses the design, analysis and experiments related to windshield wipers and their associated components. Engineers and researchers in the field are encouraged to submit their innovative ideas and findings in empirical studies, numerical simulations as well as fundamental advances dealing with material, mechanics, tribology, mechanism and heat transfer.

Abstract Currently, there is a growing demand for application of plastic coverings for motorcycles in the market. Accordingly, decorative features for plastic coverings are increasingly important to enhance the attractiveness of exterior designs of those motorcycles. Under these circumstances, the magnetically formed decorative painting had been adopted to a mass-production model sold in Thailand in 2008. Magnetically formed decorative painting is a method in which the design patterns are formed by painting a material that contains flakes movable along with magnetic fields, while applying magnetic sheets in the ornamenting design shapes underneath the part being painted. It offers a three-dimensional appearance even though its surface has no protrusions or indentations. The degree of three-dimensionality on the paint surface appearance was defined as “plasticity” [1] (a term used in pictorial arts).
The practice applies to parts and materials used in vehicle manufacture which are intended to be acceptable color matches to a specified color standard. This practice is intended for use with parts or materials that are opaque or nearly so and does not apply to transparent materials. Materials covered by this practice include topcoat paint finishes, interior soft trim, interior and exterior hard trim, and exterior film.
This SAE Standard establishes uniform test procedures for the defrosting systems of off-road, self-propelled work machines used in construction, general purpose industrial, agricultural, and forestry machinery as referenced in table one of this document. It includes tests that can be conducted with uniform test equipment in commercially available laboratory facilities, as well as in an appropriate outdoor environment.
WIP Standard
This SAE Recommended Practice is intended to provide any technical person or group interested in ignition system design and/or evaluation with the specific equipment, conditions, and methods which will produce test results definitive and reproducible for his own work and yet sufficiently standardized to be acceptable to other groups working on battery ignition systems for automotive engines.
WIP Standard
This specification covers the chromaticity and transmission requirements of equipment light transmitting ware in the descending order of transmission. It is intended for use in military aircraft lighting.
WIP Standard
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides technical recommendations for the application, design and development of lighting for Unmanned Aircraft (UA). The recommendations set forth in this document are to aid in the design of UA lighting for the type or size of aircraft and the operation in the National Aerospace System for which the aircraft is intended.
WIP Standard
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides definitions of and inspection criteria for defects commonly encountered in molded and finished glass covers for exterior aircraft lighting. This document covers, but is not limited to, visual inspection and evaluation recommendations for molded glass covers used in exterior aircraft lighting applications. The included definitions are for those defects most commonly encountered. The goal is to provide specific evaluation criteria in the following areas: a. color; b. internal quality; c. external (surface) quality; d. dimension; and e. coatings.

Inspection of glass covers shall be made at a typical reading distance with normal or corrected 20-20 vision under adequate lighting. Covers shall be free from defects which will prevent meeting intensity and beam distribution, strength, thermal shock, and other physical requirements. All covers shall be manufactured and finished using quality workmanship.

This session addresses all facets of aircraft lighting equipment–design, manufacture, operation, maintenance, and in-service experience. It will explore standards pertaining to aircraft lighting and lighting emission sources which will fulfill the needs and requirements of operational control and utility, including all lighting on and in an aircraft and under its control.
The scope of this SAE Standard is the definition of the functional, environmental, and life cycle test requirements for electrically operated backup alarm devices primarily intended for use on off-road, self propelled work machines as defined by SAE J1116 (limited to categories of 1) construction, and 2) general purpose industrial). This purpose of this document is to define a set of performance requirements for backup alarms, independent of machine usage. The laboratory tests defined in this document are intended to provide a uniform and repeatable means of verifying whether or nor a test alarm meets the stated requirements. For on-machine requirements and test procedures, refer to SAE J 1446.
