Design Strategy for Free-Form Ref lector Head Lamp Using High Intensity Discharge Light Source 970902

A design strategy for implementing High Intensity Discharge (HID) light sources in low beam head lamps with Free-Form Reflectors (FFRs) is presented. A theoretical analysis of a light source image formed by each portion of a reflector is presented as well as a strategy for using those images to create a head lamp beam pattern. Simulation results are shown for a head lamp design using this strategy.
