Allison interviews Kishore Ahuja from North American Lighting, a Koito Group company, about their adaptive headlight technology. Their “adaptive driving beam” provides a very bright, yet glare-free headlight to drivers of oncoming cars and cars that you’re trailing. This is accomplished by continuously sensing the position of each oncoming/trailing car and putting a shadow just around the outline of the car. The shadow around the car is created by selectivity turning off specific LEDs in the headlight. The rest of the beam is fully illuminated. The system also senses and shadows out stop signs and other roadway signs to reduce headlight glare that is reflected back to the driver. This system has been approved for use in Europe in Japan. Automobile manufacturers are working with the NHTSA to get this technology approved for use in North America. The setting is CES Unveiled at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.
