The use of LEDs for automotive lighting exterior applications was introduced in the early 1990s. In the last two decades, major efforts in technology development for automotive lighting have been centered on adopting LEDs and laser diodes (LD), and on increasing the benefits of using these light sources. The SAE International Lighting Standard Committee is a standardization body which has been actively developing the standards that reflect industry best practices. Recently, SAE published the standard J3069 for adaptive drive beam (ADB) headlamps, where LED and LD sources are used and the beam is dynamically controlled.
