Abstract:
The highest fatal traffic accident rate occurs on a curved road at nighttime. The “Active Headlight (AHL)” system developed by Honda R&D and Stanley Electric is the system that the beam pattern of the headlamp changes and more headlamp light is distributed toward a curve direction. The AHL system can direct alighttoward a curve before the vehicle enters a curve by using road information from a navigation system. When the AHL system moved in nighttime, visibility on curves and stability of driving were improved and glare to an oncoming vehicle was acceptable.
