Volvo creates permanent high-beam that won't blind incoming drivers



Quote
Volvo has created the permanent high beam system which won't blind incoming drivers thanks to some rather nifty tech which intelligently finds incoming cars and then shades them whilst still illuminating the rest of the surrounding area.

This impressive feat is accomplished by using the front camera which is already used for detection and auto brake, it then locates the car whether it's incoming or in front of you within a 1.5 degree margin.

The cars location is then sent to the headlamps where a tiny cylinder with metal pieces are then positioned in such a way that the area is then shaded whilst still sending the full high beam to the rest of the surrounding area.
