On-board lighting refers to the lighting system and devices installed on cars, trucks, motorcycles and other means of transportation. It is used to provide the vehicle's headlights, taillights, brake lights, turn signals, profile lights, fog lights, internal lighting and other functions.
On-board lighting plays an important role in traffic safety and driving visibility. Various types of on-board lighting devices help drivers see the road and other vehicles at night, in bad weather conditions or in low visibility, provide warnings and indications, and enhance vehicle identification.
Here are some common on-board lighting devices:
Headlamp: Provide high-light and near-light lighting to illuminate the road and obstacles ahead.
Taillights: used to indicate the rear position and presence of the vehicle and to provide the brake signal.
Turn signal lamp: used to indicate the turning intention and direction of the vehicle.
Profile light: used to mark the outline and size of the vehicle and improve the visibility at night.
Fog lamp: Provide close range lighting in severe weather conditions such as fog, rain and snow, which will increase visibility.
Internal lighting: including the internal overhead lights, instrument panel lighting, seat lights, etc., to provide comfortable and functional lighting.
On-board lighting equipment usually uses energy-saving and efficient technologies, such as LED (light-emitting diode) lighting. LED lighting has the advantages of low power consumption, long life and fast response, gradually replacing the traditional halogen lamps and fluorescent lamps.
The design and specifications of on-board lighting follow traffic regulations and standards to ensure safety and compliance. Vehicle manufacturers usually choose the appropriate on-board lighting scheme according to the requirements of different regions and markets.
