High-resolution vehicle headlamps: technologies and scanning prototype

Gerolf Kloppenburg, Alexander Wolf and Roland Lachmayer

Abstract

The introduction of adaptive front lighting systems for vehicles has increased road safety and drivers’ comfort significantly within the last years. A next step in this development is the realization of higher resolution systems to further increase the functionality of vehicle headlamps toward fully adaptive front lighting systems. In this paper, we present a short overview on highly dynamic front lighting systems and the essential technologies for their realization. Different approaches are compared and evaluated regarding their applications for headlamp systems. As an example for on-road projection systems, a laser-based scanning unit is set up and evaluated.
