Good visibility is one of the most important contributions to safe driving. Every driver knows how effective high-beam light is – and how seldom it can really be used conventionally. Adaptive High-Beam Assist Plus can take care of switching it on and off automatically.
This system makes it possible to drive with high beam constantly switched on without dazzling other motorists. The driver thus always has the optimum headlamp range at his disposal. The function is active from a speed of 30 km/h on roads without lighting.
A stereo camera located behind the windscreen identifies other illuminated road users, such as oncoming vehicles or vehicles ahead, and adjusts the headlamps automatically in line with the new traffic situation.Drivers of other vehicles are not dazzled because a mechanism in the headlamp module blots out the relevant part of the cone of light from the LED headlamps that corresponds to the other vehicle's location.
