Validating a desired headlamp beam pattern traditionally requires the selection of an appropriate thermoplastic material for the complex reflector, building prototype tooling for molding parts, and then determining the degree of reflector distortion under the extreme thermal conditions mandated during part testing.
Given a complex reflector shape by the OEM, and with knowledge of the material properties, the system predicts how the components will distort under thermal load.
Styling is further accented by clear lens complex reflector
headlamps and fog lamps and a wraparound front and rear bumper fascia.
Exterior lighting uses light-emitting diode lamps and complex reflector
Designed to make more efficient use of available light, Hitachi has developed a special polarization converter in combination with a complex reflector
light source designed to ensure that as much light as possible arrives to the LCD panel.
The projector also has a complex reflector
light source designed to maximize the amount of light reaching the LCD panel.
The change will come after a period of relative stability that saw the introduction of only occasional new technologies, such as halogen bulbs, complex reflectors
and high-intensity discharge lamps.
