This paper describes a constructive procedure aimed at developing a CAD/CAE/ CAM system for designing the reflector of an automobile headlight for a given light intensity distribution on the target (road), considering the styling of modern passenger cars. A design concept is described in which the reflector alone produces the specified illumination pattern. Consider a reflector system consisting of a reflecting surface S, a point light source O, and some object T (road). Assume that the source… CONTINUE READING
