Lexus displays road lighting to a new level

A system designed to ensure driving safety at night and in bad weather, called BladeScan and improves the photometric control zone in front of the car, from 1.7 to 0.7 degrees. This means that drivers will be able to see places that were previously inaccessible when lighting a conventional beam system, such as field lengthwise the roads, pedestrians and potential obstacles. In addition, the system allows you to pre-beyond the dark road signs.

Compared with the current generation Lexus RX, which is equipped with an automatic or adaptive led high beams included in package, Lexus Safety System +, the level of recognition of pedestrians at night improvement of 24 meters – with the new development, this figure improves to 56 meters.

In addition, the technology does not blind other drivers and minimizes the number of LEDs: in this case, in each lamp used for 10 items. LEDs are a compact unit in the front corner of each headlamp, directing light diagonally across the 2 mirrored blades that rotate at high speed. The LEDs are automatically switched on and off.

The luxury sub-brand of Toyota demonstrated this new adaptive headlamp system on video which you can see at the bottom of this article. It shows the work of innovative optics in the real world.
