Cornering Lamps and Static Bend Lighting - Performance Aspects and Technical Comparison in AFS-Systems 2003-01-0554

One of the most important features of a headlamp with adaptive light distribution is the improved side illumination for driving situations in towns, at intersections and in small radius curves. Pending legal requirements will allow use of bending light realized by side illumination from either a part of the low beam or a separate cornering lamp.
The first part of this paper compares the legal requirements of both SAE and ECE regulations for bend lighting and cornering lamps. The second part discusses the performance of different lamps developed on the basis of these regulations. They are compared with respect to technical and performance aspects.
