Ford presented the system beam Glare-Free Highbeam

Ford has introduced a new head headlights control technology, called Glare-Free Highbeam. American experts say that such a system makes it possible to avoid dazzling other drivers. “We conducted a study, the results of which showed that some drivers do not use the high beam, so as not blind oncoming cars. However, we have developed technology allows the use of high beam, without prejudice to other motorists, “- said the lead engineer of the European division of Ford, Michael Koerr. The system works in conjunction with an adaptive optics head, which can change the direction and intensity of the light beam depending on the natural lighting, vehicle speed, steering angle and distance from other vehicles. Necessary information system receives through a special video camera placed on the windshield. At night, she watches as the taillights of the car in front (at a distance of up to 800 meters), and for the headlights of oncoming cars. As we move to a particular vehicle, the technology adjusts the beam of light beam headlights so as not to dazzle oncoming drivers. Once the cars disperse, the system restores the original settings. While Glare-Free Highbeam system received only minivans Ford Galaxy and the S-Max, but in the future this technology will equip the crossover Edge crossover Edge, as well as other less dimensional model of the American brand.
