Huawei XLight: A new smart car lighting solution
Huawei is bringing new solutions for smart car makers and the company has introduced an important lighting solution, XLight for the smart car industry.
According to the information, the Huawei XLight solution enables important features and provides safety. This solution can automatically adjust diversified light patterns according to real road conditions, preset algorithm pixel-level brightness adjustment, and adapt to road mode switching.
Huawei XLight supports low-beam enhanced features for small roads in urban areas and remote villages to ensure brighter and detect obstacles more effectively.
It has an adaptive high beam system ADB (Adaptive Driving Beam), and through the self-developed precise perception algorithm, it can provide accurate shading of people and vehicles. This also ensures that the high beam does not interfere with other traffic participants.
Huawei’s car lighting system customizes the car language interaction to make the car understand you better. The smart algorithm light blanket accurately fits the lane, and the anti-shake algorithm realizes high-quality projection.
The width-displaying light carpet displays a hint of the width line in front of the car to assist in driving in narrow lanes. The interactive light carpet can flash to express interactive intentions, effectively avoiding collisions in blind spots.
