Gentex Ships One-Millionth Smartbeam System; Announces New Functionality

SmartBeam is a first-of-its-kind headlamp automation feature that uses a custom CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) image sensor and algorithmic decision-making to automatically switch a vehicle’s headlamps between low and high beams according to surrounding traffic conditions.

SmartBeam can also be used to control “constant ON” high beam systems that require next-generation headlamp hardware, which is currently being developed by various headlamp manufacturers. For these future systems, SmartBeam would generate “block-out” or “glare-free” zones around oncoming and preceding traffic, allowing light to be cast around surrounding traffic for maximum forward lighting.
