Dynamic cornering lights
The xenon headlights with dynamic and static cornering light improve illumination of the road ahead by up to 90 percent when cornering or turning. Light distribution is constantly adapted to the vehicle’s speed in the process. With the dynamic cornering light, the light beams track the turning angle of the steering wheel at speeds above 10 km/h. Based on the angle of the steering wheel and the vehicle speed, servo motors in the headlight assemblies swivel the headlights to illuminate the line of the bend as effectively as possible. To prevent oncoming traffic from being dazzled, the swivel angle of the dynamic cornering light is limited to 15 degrees. Thanks to this technology, drivers are able to make out the line of the bend as well as any obstacles, people or animals ahead sooner. This gives the driver more time to react, and the risk of an accident is reduced considerably.
