Driving on dark roads can be tricky, which is why Denso created their new Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) headlights. The system works in conjunction with your GPS and moves your car's headlights according to the direction you're moving your steering wheel. As a result, the lights illuminate upcoming corners, making it safer to make turns. It's not a radical concept, but hopefully it can prevent bad drivers from smashing into other cars.
yep, pretty much every modern/luxury car has had this feature. It is usually hooked up to steering wheel and speed, so that a slight steering adjustment at high speeds will have an appropriate movement vs full turns in the city.
@ Gizak - Audi R8's have a set of leds in the headlight and I believe the feature works by illuminating the leds as needed vs. a servo.
