According to foreign media slashgear, Audi R8 is the first mass production vehicle to use LED headlights. At that time, the automobile LED lighting technology was just in its infancy: R8 was at the dawn of a newer, more modern and seemingly more high-tech automobile era. andAt this year's Los Angeles Auto Show, in addition to the new Audi e-tron Sportback, the company actually brought a bigger thing - related to digital matrix LED headlights.
It is understood that each of these headlights can project up to 1.2 million individual pixels of light. Two would double that number to 2.4 megapixels, which would theoretically allow the headlights to project a whole movie on the front of the car, even though it's black and white. If black and white movies don't sound attractive to you, don't worry. Audi is developing color pixels for the next generation of digital matrix LED technology.
"In the future, we will consider the communication in front of the car or around the car, such as Fang Shuo, who warns cyclists on the right and pedestrians on the left," said Stephen Berlitz, head of innovation Department of Audi lighting. "We may bring some (New) things to you in CES next year, maybe the same technology will be applied to taillights, but at present I can That's all that's revealed. "
This is produced by e-tron Sportback, which is called Audi's "light blanket" and works with the camera used by the autopilot system. It will adjust the brightness of the lights according to the conditions of the road. At present, however, the system is only applicable to highway driving, it will only start when the speed reaches 40 miles per hour and it will only work when there are visible Lane signs on the road.
It is reported that the price of e-tron Sportback equipped with the system is 4000 pounds higher than that of the normal version.
