Recommendations of the SAE Task Force on Headlamp Mounting Height

HISTORICAL
J2338_201004
The Society of Automotive Engineers task force on headlamp mounting height has considered the ramificaitons of reducing the maximum mounting height of headlamps on highway vehicles. The task force has concluded that it is the best interest of the driving public to make a significant reduction in the recommended maximum height at which headlamps, particularly lower beam headlamps, may be mounted. Heights as low as 36 to 40 in (0.9 to 1.0 m) have been considered. New tractor vehicles are in fact being designed with headlamps mounted in this range. Further recommendations were withheld in anticipation of tests to demonstrate the effect of mounting height on the legibility of certain overhead signs.

The SAE International task force on headlamp mounting height has considered the ramifications of reducing the maximum mounting height of headlamps on highway vehicles. The task force has concluded that it is in the best interest of the driving public to make a substantial reduction in the recommended maximum height at which headlamps, particularly low-beam headlamps, may be mounted. Heights as low as 36 to 40 in (90 to 100 cm) have been considered. New tractor vehicles are in fact being designed with headlamps mounted in this range. Further recommendations were withheld in anticipation of tests to demonstrate the effect of mounting height on the legibility of certain overhead signs.

Headlamp Mounting Height for Passenger and Pickup Truck Vehicles

J2584_201102
The Mounting Height Task Force was tasked to determine the extent of the problem(s) associated with vehicle headlamps mounted at or above the level of the mirror(s) in passenger vehicles; the level of glare exposure caused by high-mounted headlamps; the appropriate height differential needed to maintain a glare level consistent with past and/or current passenger vehicle headlamp mounting; and the necessary headlamp mounting height necessary to control mirror glare at an accepted/acceptable level. The report herein addresses these passenger vehicle mounting height issues.
