Every time you drive in the darkness you may face someone coming around the corner and forgetting to dip their headlights, which may turn out dangerous. Volvo has developed an Active High Beam Control, a mechanical system installed in the headlights that actively and selectively shields oncoming or cars being followed from the lights. The renewed technology aims to enhance visibility in the dark by making it possible to use high beam permanently, without having to switch to low beam when meeting or catching up with other cars. The camera installed in the Volvo’s rear-view mirror for the car’s detection and auto braking system spots the other car and measures the area to be shaded within a 1.5-degree margin. The producer reports the system also works with motorcycles and at speeds down to 9 mph (15 km/h). Volvo will have the system on display at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and it will be available in the Volvo S60, V60 and XC60 models from the Northern Hemisphere later in spring.
