It has not been commonly known that automotive exterior lights are safety devices and must comply with governmental regulations. Since the 1930s, the SAE Lighting Standards Committee has been actively working with the automotive industry OEMs, lamp makers, tier-two suppliers, and human factor experts to develop automotive lighting standards. These standards have been widely used or referenced by the U.S. federal or state governments in establishing and enforcing the lighting regulations.

The benefits of laminated glass for automobiles are being recognized at both the manufacturer and consumer levels, resulting in an increasing number of vehicles adopting this technology. This evolution in glass technology creates both opportunities and challenges, which must be understood by today's automotive designers and engineers for successful implementation. Because laminated glass has different structural properties than tempered glass, this 40 minute presentation will provide an overview of best practices for integration of the product into vehicle door systems based upon extensive testing and field experience.

Lighting Emitting Diode (LED), a new generation semiconductor light source often referred to as Solid-State Lighting (SSL), has been broadly adopted in illumination, display, visualization, and other areas due to its higher efficacy and longer life. LEDs, first introduced for automotive interior applications such as indicators, expanded to exterior applications including center high mounted stop lamps and other automotive signal lighting devices. Today, LED technologies are being used for night vision, occupancy detection, and many other automotive application areas.
