An Approach for the Optical Design of an LED Fog Lamp 2004-01-0226

Traditionally fog lamps use halogen filament light sources. With the emergence of high brightness white LEDs, it is now possible to develop automotive forward lighting systems with LED light sources. Six LEDs are shown to be sufficient for the implementation of a European fog lamp using a faceted reflector optical approach. Each reflector together with the LED light source forms a modular element. The optical parameters of two different lamp designs are compared and correlation between the simulation and prototype measurements is shown. Further, additional forward lighting functions can be implemented through the use of additional elements.
