Toyota's new LED Array Lighting System


Headlights are a tricky thing to develop as you want to illuminate as much of the road as possible without blinding oncoming drivers. Toyota has developed a system that that balances these two factors.

Toyota's new LED Array Adaptive High Beam System uses multiple independently controlled LEDs arranged in a single horizontal line to give a wide range of illumination. A front view camera monitors the road and can dim or brighten each LED light allowing for gaps in the illuminated area.

The system not only adapts to oncoming and preceding vehicles, it also will adapt to circumstances such as a wide beam for slow urban driving and a long, narrower beam for highway driving.

Maybe we will get to see this on the Supra, but regardless it will be making an appearance in Toyota vehicles in 2015.

This is a really cool lighting system.
Good to see they're finally catching on to tech like this..

Yea this seems like it is slightly past due. Especially if it actually makes things safer. They better roll out a feature like this pretty quick across the full lineup.

I wouldn't say past due but more like right timing.

Overall it's just cool to see how technology is improving in cars overall. Which this is a cool feature that hopefully comes standard on all their cars.

That it is.
I'm just glad to see more and more projector headlight systems on vehicles from the factory rather than them still coming with just a halogen blub. Kind of like car makers that still use drum brakes on passenger cars.

I think its one thing when technology is just for comfort or performance, but when it is a matter of safety I think that technology needs to be rolled out across as many vehicles as possible as quickly as possible. Generally, I think people shouldn't have to pay to be safe.

why shouldn't people have to pay to be safe?

I think that the government has an interest in having people drive safe cars. Car companies have that interest too. I suppose it does come down to how much government intervention you think is reasonable to ensure that people are driving the safest vehicles. The other question is what level of safety is something that should be mandated, and what level of safety should be considered a luxury?

That interest only goes so far, which is minimal, just look at what is required of vehicles to past government safety regulations and requirements. Anything more you should have no right to and pay for if you want it.
