Opel has released a statement regarding a new innovative lighting system its currently working on.
Instead of being stationary, or swiveling when the steering wheel is turned, these adaptive headlights shine wherever the driver is looking.
The system uses cameras and infrared sensors to monitor the driver’s eyes. It does so more than 50 times per second at night.
The headlamp then makes the necessary adjustments, but not in frantic motions as our eyes tend to move.
Opel knew that a human being can’t focus on one specific are for more than a few seconds, so to counteract for the car’s headlamps going berserk, it wrote an algorithm to keep the movement of the headlamps as smooth as possible.
This new technology will be launched internationally within the next 18 months.
