GM's Eyeball Headlights Can Be Moved With The Human Eye

- Aug 16, 2019-

A few days ago, the General Motors Group released a new technology, followed by headlight lighting technology. It uses an in-vehicle infrared scanner to monitor the direction of the driver's eyes in real time and convert the corresponding electrical signals to control the angle of illumination of the headlights. In this way, the lighting effect of “what you see is bright” is achieved.


According to the general engineer, the monitoring sensor of this system is a set of infrared and photodiodes, which can repeatedly scan the driver's eye at a frequency of 50 times per second. At the same time, the lights will immediately adjust the horizontal and vertical position to ensure that the driver sees anywhere.

In fact, GM's new technology is derived from the fatigue monitoring system. The system will analyze the direction of illumination of the lights according to your driving speed, geographic location and traffic conditions, and the eye tracking technology will identify the direction of movement of the driver's eye, and then the lights will be adjusted according to this direction. However, GM did not give the exact production time of the technology, only that they have already started the actual vehicle test on Opel.
