ADAP­TIVE HEAD­LIGHTS

Mercury (Hobart) - Cars Guide - - COVER STORY -

Adap­tive head­lights use steer­ing wheel an­gle sen­sors to an­tic­i­pate an ap­proach­ing curve in the road and bend their beam to peer around cor­ners. More re­cent tech­nol­ogy al­lows driv­ers to leave their high-beam on per­ma­nently with­out daz­zling on­com­ing driv­ers. Cam­eras scan the road ahead and shut down or dim in­di­vid­ual LEDs so that the ap­proach­ing traf­fic is shaded but the sur­round­ings stay brightly il­lu­mi­nated.
