From matrix beam to micro-LEDs: How ADB headlights in cars are changing

Technology Trends

Micro-LED-based headlights will be the next big leap for carmakers in achieving highly digital (HD), homogeneous illumination without glaring other road users

Inadequate illumination has been one of the key factors of road accidents when driving at night. Although a vehicle’s headlights feature high-beam and low-beam lights, drivers generally refrain from using the high-beam light, fearing this might glare drivers of other vehicles and other road users, causing accidents. For such drivers, adaptive driving beam (ADB) headlights came as a big relief. The intelligent headlights automatically adjust their high-beam lights according to driving conditions and offer optimum illumination of the road while preventing glare for other road users. Such headlights rely on the feedback of the front camera and other sensors to efficiently use high-beam lights.
