Today, vehicle manufacturers are continually looking for lighting improvement and styling flexibility. Therefore, headlamp systems manufacturers have to conceive and develop new designs that improve the performance and reduce volume with no significant cost increase.
To reach these objectives, one of the most interesting new technologies is the Compact Lighting System. The aim of this concept is to develop a headlamp system for the two functions, Low and High beams, with only one reflector and one light source. The Compact Lighting concept provides significant volume savings and improves overall lighting performance.
Moreover, the Compact Lighting concept provides HID bulb optimization by using this high performance component for both functions, High and Low beams.
