A Fully Virtual Driving Lab for Testing Lighting Systems in a Controlled Environment
Reduce the amount of physical night road-testing, by assessing headlamp performance in a virtual environment. Test your intelligent headlamps in real time, under nighttime conditions, with your control law in-the-loop testing and without waiting for the sun to set. Virtually analyze headlamp efficiency versus previous designs or competitors, or simply compare configurations in one click.
Simulate Your Night Drives
VRXPERIENCE Headlamp accelerates the development of intelligent headlamps by validating control law behavior and testing potential edge cases early in design. Easily assess innovative light beams, playing with hundreds of ready-to-use light sources from leading references. Increase your final product quality and strongly reduce the risk of finding issues late in the development process. Virtual validation adds flexibility so you can quickly move back and forth between headlamp optical design and on-road light distribution testing.
Real-time and physics-based optical simulation guarantee the realism of virtual headlamp prototypes in the driving environment. By accounting for the optical properties of material and light propagation from headlamps and additional light sources, you can perform accurate reviews and make reliable decisions about continuing to the physical prototyping phase.
You can experience the real-time simulation on multiple screens to create a wider, more immersive environment for human-in-the-loop simulation or collaborative quality reviews.
Use headlamp built-in driving scenarios to create and simulate standard driving situations, both in static and automated driving modes. Create complex driving scenarios in combination with VRXPERIENCE Driving Simulator Powered by SCANeR™.
Develop Lighting Systems
You can use virtual measurement tools to detect, analyze and compare any defects in beam patterns, including chromatic aberrations. Directly assess light beams and perform regulation checks thanks to a wide set of analysis tools, from visualization in false colors to measurement grids and aiming walls. Advanced features enable the development of complex intelligent lighting systems — from cornering light, adaptive front lighting systems, dynamic bending light, adaptive driving beams and matrix beams to pixel beams.
Assess the Performance of Lighting Systems
While headlights need to light the road ahead as much as possible to optimize driver safety, they also need to prevent creating dangerous or distracting glare for other drivers, in vehicles approaching or ahead. To optimize the efficiency of your systems, VRXPERIENCE Headlamp comes with dedicated tools that measure the discomfort of the glare generated by other vehicles’ headlamps, from a driver’s perspective on various lighting configurations and scenarios. You can also virtually evaluate and optimize the rating of the headlamp according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) test track and measurement devices.
