Ford Developing a New Lighting System in Its Cars for Safer Night Driving

If you wondered for long why any carmaker has not paid special attention to make night driving safer, then Ford's new lighting technology will thrill you. Till now only high end luxury car makers made an effort to provide night-vision systems even though many car manufacturers have worked with many other safety features to improve their models.

In an announcement Ford said that it is developing a new lighting technology which will elevate the level of adaptive headlights.

Although in its development stage, the Camera-Based Advanced Front Lighting System in Ford's models will use Adaptive Front Lighting System and Traffic Sign Recognition in order to adjust the intensity of lighting under specific driving conditions.

It will be equipped with a feature where the left-side headlights will become dimmer while taking a right-hand turn. This will prevent from blinding the driver approaching from the other side. At the same time, it will curve the high beams more towards the right so that greater road surface is illuminated to help the driver.

When satellite signal is available it will use the GPS to spot turns which also includes the roundabout. When the signal is not available the system will take help from the forward-mounted camera fitted in the car.
