Bringing Intelligent Headlamps to Light via Simulation
Once seen as a basic, utilitarian product feature, today automotive headlamps are becoming much more innovative — and a critical source of competitive differentiation. Intelligent headlamps, which autonomously produce adaptive light beams, are capturing the imagination of the world’s automakers and consumers alike. But how can automotive engineering teams verify the performance of their complex headlamp designs, which incorporate optics, sensors and embedded software controls, under every possible driving condition? The answer lies in engineering simulation. Ansys offers a complete modeling and simulation package for intelligent headlamps, including Ansys SPEOS for optics development, Ansys SCADE for software design and Ansys VRXPERIENCE for virtual nighttime road testing.
