Since the invention of the automobile, lighting has been an important subsystem on all ground vehicles. Automotive lighting is vital to passenger safety, comfort and vehicle styling. The technology used in automotive lighting has rapidly expanded to make the lighting more value added, safer and pleasing to customers. This seminar provides broad information about automotive lighting systems with emphasis on lighting functions, effectiveness, and technologies. The intent is to assist attendees to gain sufficient knowledge about automotive lighting and its importance in overall vehicle design and development. Since only the exterior lighting devices on the ground vehicles are regulated by the federal and local governments, and standardized by the SAE Lighting Committee and the international communities, this course will only address automotive exterior lighting.
