Osram Takes Adaptive LED Headlamps to New Level

LED headlamps have become increasingly popular in the past few years due to styling, durability, and energy efficiency. Even mainstream vehicles often support SSL either for the main headlamp and/or daytime running lights. Still, LEDs offer potential advantages that go way beyond styling. Adaptive designs could essentially eliminate the need for low beams by steering the light in a way that ensures the light does not impact oncoming drivers. The new technology developed by Osram and its partners will create even more flexibility in terms of keeping light out of the eyes of oncoming drivers, and placing the light in places that best allow the driver to see pedestrians and obstacles. The 1024 LED sources are all integrated in what Osram describes as a thumbnail-size chip. The module would adapt continuously based on factors such as weather conditions, speed, traffic, and route. http://www.ledsmagazine.com/
