As the patentholder of emergency lighting output driven by original equipment (OE) lighting control systems, ESS can standardize system controls and the lighting output of H.E.L.P. via technical provisions of our license agreements with automakers and their OEM suppliers. Once fully deployed as a standard feature on all vehicles, the H.E.L.P. emergency lighting pattern will be uniform regardless of make and model.
