Why more and more auto makers and car drivers prefer smart car headlights

Smart car headlights, also known as adaptive headlights or adaptive driving beam headlights (ADB), illuminate the road with a constant beam that is as bright as high beam of a traditional headlight. ADB systems use sensors and special light unit designs that can change the shape, brightness, and direction of the light in stead of the driver or vehicle computer changing between two brightness settings.A shutter system physically blocks part of the headlight beam, or with a matrix-style headlight unit made up of multiple light sources that can be turned on and off as needed. Adaptive headlights can also mean light systems that change direction depending on steering inputs of a car, and you may hear the term in the name of automatic high beam headlights or similar devices, but those systems are not functionally the same as smart headlights we are talking here.

1)Provide Better Visibility and Less Distraction
Existing automatic high-beam headlight systems are good, but they still have some limitations . For example, if you are driving in a suburban area with traffic and LED streetlights, they can become confused and keep the high beams on when they shouldn’t, or in some cases they can end up switching between low and high beam lights rapidly, which is both dangerous and bad for visibility. Smart headlights help avoid these problems by reading the road and surrounding conditions and applying light only where it is needed. Instead of changing between two brightness settings, brightness and shape of adaptive headlights change according to surrounding conditions. Where some automatic high beam systems become confused between streetlights and oncoming headlights and switch off when they shouldn’t, the advanced sensors and detection systems of smart headlights will avoid the quick change in brightness.

2)Safer in Poor Weather Conditions
If you have ever driven at a foggy, rainy night, you know the trouble of changing between low and high beam settings, only to find that neither fits the situation quite right. Adaptive headlights cannot solve all of the relevant problems, but they can illuminate the road ahead with much better accuracy and less reflection from heavy fog. ADB systems can change the shape of the light beam and some may combine fog lights into the mix as well, so they are able to direct the light lower and to the side of the road for better visibility in the front.

3)Doesn’t Blind Others Nearby
As we know, the headlights on new cars are getting brighter. Now, even low beam headlights can be affecting the eyesights of other drivers and pedestrians. Adaptive headlights keep the bright lights off of pedestrians and other drivers, it is safer for people on the road and for other drivers to see the forward. If there is a vehicle on the opposit, the beam is partially blocked or turned off so that the other driver can still see everything, but the rest of the road remains shined by bright light, which greatly improves their visibility in right time.
