The latest partnership between HELLA and Daimler AG focused on innovative lighting systems, leading to the launch of high-resolution multibeam LED headlamps on the new Mercedes E-Class.
The innovative headlight features a three-layered pixel light and a total of 84 individual controllable LEDs (per headlamp) which adjust the light distribution depending on the traffic, weather and road conditions.
The integrated adaptive ‘high beam assistant plus’ even ensures that high beam is used more frequently, offering greater safety and comfort.
The ‘adaptive highbeam’ function prevents other drivers from being dazzled but allows the driver maximum visibility by keeping the safe areas between them illuminated.
Award winning technology
The newly developed headlight also reduces reflections on the oncoming lane when it is raining, by specifically dimming individual LEDs in the low beam.
Moreover, glare from illuminated road signs is reduced by the system lessening the brightness of individual LEDs.
As well as its high functionality, the second generation multibeam LED headlamp, with high-end lighting technology, won the prestigious product design category in the Red Dot Awards 2016.
The award also takes account of the two light guides that generate the direction indicators, daytime running lights and position lights in the beacon design, complementing the Mercedes Benz style.
