Mercedes-Benz Introduces “Digital Light” Technology

Mercedes-Benz has just unveiled the Digital Light technology that aims to improve safety and communication with other drivers and pedestrians by projecting signals onto the road.

Announced at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Digital Light is a new HD-quality headlamp. As it has been shared by Mercedes-Benz, the new HD headlamp features chips that work with over one million micro mirrors, i.e. more than two million in total per vehicle.

Thanks to integrated cameras and sensors, the headlights can show directional and warning icons by detecting other road users and evaluating the data using powerful computers.

For example, drivers can easily see pedestrians at night and headlights can show a pedestrian road with the help of Digital Light. They can also be assisted with the symbols such as Low-grip surface, construction-site, rear-end collision, lane-keeping, blind-spot and speed symbol.

Gunter Fischer, Head of Exterior Body Development and Vehicle Operating Systems at Daimler AG, said:

With our ‘DIGITAL LIGHT’ strategy we are not striving for beam records, rather we want to achieve optimum vision and maximum brightness without glare. Innovative functions for supporting the driver and staging communication with other road users significantly optimise safety when driving at night.

Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development, said:

With a resolution of over one million pixels per headlamp, DIGITAL LIGHT not only creates ideal light conditions for every driving situation; it also extends the visual support from our driving assistance systems.

Developed by Mercedes-Benz, this Digital Light innovation is a collaborative work including two other partner companies in the process. The headlights will be available on a limited production run of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class in 2018.

Even the technology used for Digital Light seems quite expensive and complex, innovation like this can be a new perspective for the companies in the automotive industry.
