SAE 2014 World Congress & Exhibition

Technical Session Schedule

Wednesday, April 9

Automotive Lighting Technology Conference
(Session Code: B300)

Room 116 B  1:00 p.m.

Aging driver populations and increasingly complex driving environments present ever greater challenges, but rapid developments in automotive lighting offer hope for improvements in both safety and driver visual comfort. These papers cover developments in lighting technology, as well as human factors analyses of expected benefits for drivers. LED light sources play a major role in enabling innovations in advanced forward lighting, as well as in signaling and marking functions.
