Driving Vision News announces this week our latest detailed technical report, on the state of the art and market in Adaptive Lighting.
We present all the available information of the technology, and—of utmost importance—we propose some ideas to better promote these new technologies focused on Adaptive Lighting.
50 pages with 70 illustrations, curves, plots, and data sheets present comprehensively useful information about the technologies in their newest automotive application. DVN team has worked hard to make this report a reference standard for our professional community of car makers, Tier 1 & 2 suppliers, and research groups. It assembles all needed strategic information on technology, proposals to improve communication and a glossary defining all used words.
This present report discerns two main categories of lighting:
1) Conventional light system with low beam and high beam manually operated by the driver so as to illuminate the roadway as much as possible without blinding other motorists.
2) Adaptive light systems which automatically, dynamically adapts the vehicle’s lighting in accord with prevailing roadway geometry, weather conditions, vehicle speed, and traffic,
After defining these two categories, the report presents in detail the adaptive lighting functions, AFS, High Beam Assistant, Adaptive Cut-Off, Glare Free High Beam, Pixel Light, and Spot Marking Light. For these adaptive functions, the author describes their respective benefits and presents the systems developed and produced by the main global lighting suppliers.
This report aims to clarify the classification of the different automotive lighting functions, and to present the current offerings of adaptive lighting systems from major global suppliers.
Again, we need your comments and your feedback. If you see something you’d like to comment on…if you’d like to see something we haven’t yet covered…please drop us a line! We’re listening.
