How to get top IIHS safety pick status
Since 2016, IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has been testing headlamps with newly established methods. The IIHS test is performed on real equipment when the vehicle is ready to go, sometimes resulting in an unsatisfying rating.
The result of the IIHS test has a strong influence on the market and on consumers, but automotive OEM companies and tier-1 suppliers don’t have the tools to make sure their future headlamps will meet IIHS requirements. What they need is to predict a poor rating during the early development phase of the headlamps, so that they have plenty of time to fix potential issues earlier and increase the safety and hence the very value of their car. The vehicle would then be highly competitive thanks to its improved safety and would contribute to reducing the number of fatal car accidents.
The answer to this challenge, a fully-automated IIHS headlamp test simulation solution, including all vehicle dynamics, now enables OEM companies and Tier-1 suppliers to precisely predict the result of the IIHS headlamp test and to make the relevant design and performance optimization.
