UNIFIED MEASUREMENT METHODOLOGY FOR HEADLIGHT BEAMS INCLINATION BY USING DIFFERENT TYPE OF TESTERS
This paper presents a developed methodology for determining the direction of the dipped-beam headlamps using different specialized devices, which will allow for unambiguous results, regardless of the measuring devices used and factory labels of the headlamps. Using the developed measurement methodology, it is possible to measure the direction of the dipped-beam headlamps of vehicles produced before and after the entry into force of the European Directives for the type-approval of headlamps used in vehicles. Despite the use of different types of measuring instruments, unmatched results are obtained, which is achieved thanks to the measurement methodology. Furthermore, the reference limits d for measuring and regulating the dipped-beam headlamps of vehicles produced prior to the entry into force of the EC type-approval directives are set. This will allow proper control of the direction of the headlamps, which will improve traffic safety.
