Symbols can be projected onto the road in HD quality. When the Distronic control system recognizes that the distance from the vehicle ahead has fallen below the safety level, a rear-end collision warning symbol is projected at speeds above 19 miles per hour.
When the vehicle's Lane Keep Assist system recognizes that the vehicle has left its lane unintentionally and a collision with oncoming traffic threatens, a lane-keeping symbol is projected as a warning.
Digital Light uses the vehicle's cameras and sensors systems to identify other road users, pedestrians and cyclists for example, and ideally adapt the light distribution to the environment. In this process, the heads of oncoming road users like pedestrians can be shielded from the light beam to reliably prevent dazzling them. Active above 34 miles per hour.
When driving through a construction zone, a roadworks warning symbol and two light traces are projected onto the vehicle's lane. These guidelines represent the overall width of the vehicle, and help the driver to maintain his bearings.
On narrow roads, a light beam directly guides the driver using a rail lighting. To do this, two lines of light are projected onto the road surface which show the vehicle width and guide the driver safely through.
If a pedestrian is detected in the danger zone near the road, an arrow pointing towards them appears on the road surface. This is in addition to the mark already made by the Spotlight function of the Nightview Assist Plus. Active above 41 miles per hour.
Powerful computers evaluate the data provided by vehicle sensors and cameras and give the headlamps instructions to distribute the light to best effect in all situations. To avoid dazzle, the lights are dimmed when oncoming traffic, other road users and traffic signs are detected. Digital Light enables the shaded area to be made considerably smaller, with more light shed on the road.
