The verification and validation of matrix headlamp systems in night-time test drives involves a great deal of effort. Thepresented method of stationary test drives allows investigations on the influence of vehicle dynamics on the quality oflight distribution to be carried out at any time in the laboratory or light channel. This optimizes the development processas errors can be found faster and earlier. In this contribution the components of the test scenario for the new methodare presented and the new possibilities are shown. In contrast to real test drive, artificial tracks can also be tested withreal headlamps, making reproducible and comparable investigations possible. In addition, the control strategy of themechanical system is presented and evaluated.
