LightTools can be used to design and analyze the performance of a wide variety of illumination systems.
Recently, LightTools was put to the test to redesign a segmentedreflector stop lamp at Yorka North America. Using LightTools to precisely analyze the luminous intensity
and illuminance distributions in the original design, we were able to correct the design problems, meet SAE standards, and build a prototype that agreed very well with the simulations.
This paper describes how the redesign was accomplished.
