Light Distribution Editor (LDE) Virtual Light World in HELIOS 970907
HELIOS is a program for calculation, simulation and analysis of lighting problems expecially designed for car lighting technologies.
Base is an “experiment” in which optical elements and theire features are described. Example: The reflector is defind by CAD-data and the surface is reflective. The result of simulation will be a light distribution. The performance has to be analysed.
The LDE gives us the possibility to analyse light distribution strategies before calculation of the reflector surface itself. It is a
“virtual light world”.
This reduces developing time and costs and gives a help to find the best technical solution for complex illumination problems.
