Ford introduce glare-free headlights
When travelling at night an oncoming car with the full beam headlights dazzling your eyes is one of the most irritating things. With this is mind Ford have launch a glare-free highbeam system that allows full beam to be active without effecting oncoming traffic.
Automatically altering the headlights by using a special camera that is mounted in the windscreen, it can detect vehicle and cyclists from up to 800metres away. Light that may briefly affect the sight of cyclists or other road users is blocked out.
Speaking about the launch of glare-free headlights Michael Koherr, Ford Research Engineer commented “Drivers are so concerned about dazzling other road users that they don’t use high beam at all” therefore with this new feature will have sufficient use with semi-autonomous technology of Ford’s anti-glare high beams will enable a more relaxed driving experience in dark conditions. This new feature has been tested in night time conditions around the globe.”
When launched the Ford Glare-Free Highbeam system will be available on various models across the Ford range. This is set to include Ford, Edge, Ford Galaxy and Ford S-Max. For further information about Ford Technology call 0333 414 9750 to speak to a Jennings Ford specialist.
