The Development of the “Line-Beam Headlamp” 1999-01-0384

Many types of low profile headlamps have been developed to meet the great demand to improve both aerodynamics and styling. However, none have resolved the principal subject, “the compatibility of light-efficiency and styling”.
Our innovative development is the super -low profile headlamp system, which contains totally unique reflectors. The special combination of reflectors is designed to generate beam pattern. To achieve this innovation, the precise light control technology and the research for optimal headlamp beam pattern were essential. The head-lamp performance was examined by our original computer simulation system.
As a result, this headlamp is only 30mm high and it has extremely high light efficiency. It also provides excellent headlamp performance, in regards to the bright foreground illumination, long distance visibility and accurate glare control.
