2:00 PM SAE Headlight Rating Standardization

·        Consumer Reports and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rate vehicle headlamp performance in the US
·        Each organization’s rating focuses only on some aspects of a headlamps performance, resulting in variability between rating for the same vehicle
·        This presentation outlines the status of SAE’s work to develop an all-encompassing headlight rating system as an alternative to these rating systems

Check out the incredible speaker line-up to see who will be joining Michael.
