Hyundai Mobis Develops Advanced Adaptive Driving Beam
October 26, 2018—Hyundai Mobis has announced that the company has developed the world’s first Advanced Adaptive Driving Beam (AADB) which safely ensures vision with high beams turned on all the time in connection with an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).
The Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) is a form of technology that helps a driver ensure vision by always maintaining high beam operation and preventing the glare on the driver of the car in front by blocking only the light of the high beams directed at the car in front at the same time.
The ADB is a useful technology for safe driving at night in the coming age of autonomous driving. The lamps of innovative vehicles are evolving in such a way as to finely control the light by precisely detecting vehicles and roads. Even during night driving, lanes, road signs and various objects on the road must be detected in real time, which is necessary for autonomous driving.
But the ADB is limited in properly responding to the rapid movement of other vehicles, such as vehicles overtaking from behind and vehicles making quick turns. Due to the technical problems of the current method—which uses cameras to detect the light in front and identify vehicles—most global automotive lamp makers are striving to solve this challenge.
