The vehicular illumination system has undergone considerable technological advances in recent decades such as the use of a Light Emitting Diode (LED) and HID (high intensity discharge) lamps. However, the challenges to develop a global beam pattern for ECE markets have been quite difficult due to different needs in different regions. Global programs have to deal with the differences among costumer needs and desires. This paper shows the challenges to understand the different needs and highlights the opportunities for the future to improve road illumination and the driver's safety adopting simulations and different road scenarios.
