We are pleased to announce the availability of LucidShape® Lite version 2017.03 Service Release 1 (2017.03-1).
In this issue:
In addition to the highly technical TC4-45 headlamp benchmark and the on-road “consumer report” benchmark available in previous releases, this version of LucidShape Lite includes the IIHS Headlight benchmark, which is based on U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) guidelines.
The new benchmark allows you to analyze the performance of a beam pattern (.LID files) for low and high beams per the relevant IIHS rating and protocol content as of version 2 (November 2016). The IIHS benchmark includes:
The following figure shows a regular false color Bird’s Eye View generated in LucidShape Lite 2017.03-1 with a 5-lux illuminance isoline plot measured at a 25 cm above-road detection height. This was created using IIHS protocol-derived parameters to create the Bird’s Eye View from a low beam pattern and subsequently using the custom isoline functionality in the UVdataView’s properties.
The figure below shows the IIHS headlight benchmark workflow chart in LucidShape 2017.03-1. The benchmark requires the headlight geometry, test settings, the definition of the beam patterns for low and high beams, and the appropriate aiming angles. You can display results in a short report or export them in a .CSV data file with detailed detector data.
For details about the IIHS Headlight Benchmark, see the LucidShape tutorial IIHS headlight test.pdf, which is available in the tutorials folder in the LucidShape Lite installation directory (e.g., C:\LucidLite2017.03-1\doc). In addition, please see the LucidShape 2017.03-1 Release Notes, available on our Customer Support Portal for details about these and other updates included in the release.
