Fast Track - Static and Dynamic Bending Analysis 2004-01-0440

A big step in improving visibility, safety and comfort during night-time driving is given by a headlamp with a swiveling low beam unit (dynamic bending) and/or an additional light unit for side illumination (static bending). These new technologies in headlamps will improve the illumination of curves and intersections, and will reduce driver's stress and fatigue, which is often associated with difficult night-time driving conditions.
To focus on these new technologies and their benefits there has been made description, comparison and evaluation of their use.
This paper includes a recommendation for the light distribution, side spread and intensity of illumination by the static bending and the dynamic bending light and analyzes three possible solutions of a bending system using static bending, dynamic bending and combination of these systems too.
