ELTM in ASAP: Automotive lighting testing for SAE, ECE, and FMVSS compliance
Updated: Mar 04, 2015
Author(s): Breault Research Organization
This technical publication outlines the steps for using ELTM (Exterior Lighting Test Module) in the Advanced Systems Analysis Program (ASAP®) from Breault Research Organization (BRO). ELTM simplifies the task of assuring that your prospective design meet mandatory compliance standards for automotive lighting.
Tabulated results and informative graphics accompany the SAE, ECE, and FMVSS pre-programmed lighting tests. Custom lighting tests can also be added with minimal effort. Since ELTM eliminates the need to implement your test configurations, you can concentrate on innovation and streamlining the design process in a time-sensitive marketplace. With over 160 high-fidelity source models and an expanded CAD interoperability within ASAP, the bottom line is an accelerated design process.
