Opel introduces LED light matrix technology [video]

Opel has unveiled their new LED light matrix technology.

Designed to make nighttime driving safer, the system uses high beams in the standard driving mode. While this sounds odd, a front camera detects oncoming traffic and automatically dims the area around the vehicle.  However, the rest of the road remains brightly illuminated.

As for the headlights themselves, they have four light segments with four separate light sources that can be switched on or off individually. This gives the headlights 256 different light combinations which are adjusted in a "smooth and fluid" motion so the driver isn't distracted.

The LED light matrix technology is still undergoing testing, but will be introduced in production models within a few years.
