Five Ways to Enhance the Accuracy of Automotive Optical Simulations

When designing automotive optical systems, it’s important to know as precisely as possible the optical characteristics of the materials that will be used inside and outside the vehicle. This will give you accurate data to simulate and evaluate the optical systems and how they interact with the materials. You will be able to create an accurate prototype more quickly and have confidence in the simulation results.
