Fried was engaged to carry out a feasibility study as part of a joint project with an internationally leading agricultural technology manufacturer. The study examines how a modular system can be created through the intelligent grouping of individual headlights in order to leverage design and savings potential.
Purpose of the Study
The task is complex and includes some special challenges. In order to develop a headlamp, several requirements and conditions have to be taken into account. The following factors were investigated:
- Available installation space
- Variants investigation
- Required light output
- Thermal management
The first step was to draw up a specification sheet containing all the requirements and general conditions. Among other things, ambient temperatures, standards and guidelines, material selection, electrical and illumination requirements and available installation space were defined. The requirements specification creates a clear basis and can also be used when it comes to sourcing.
