General Motor to Implement Headlights for Safer Smarter Travel

General Motor to Implement Headlights for Safer Smarter Travel -

A European subsidiary of General Motors (GM), Opel / Vauxhall, develops a headlight system that deemed to be smarter than the current flagship system which is already available on the market. Therefore, instead of adjusting the direction of the projector according to the direction of the wheel of the car, the flagship of the GM will be redirecting the lighting depending on the eye movement of the driver. It seems incredible, right?

For this to work, there will be a single camera with very probably installed devices infrared sensors around the seat area of ​​the driver and it supposed to be able to characteristics scanner and the eyes of more than 50 times seconds the driver's face to determine where they are looking at this time. In addition, it is designed to be able to work in poor lightning conditions such as at dusk or night and the data is designed to be as specific as possible to reality.


This (of course) the challenges in the design of this system. One of them is that our eyes are blinking normally, therefore, there is a special algorithm implemented in order to monitor where the driver is looking and how focused he or she is looking at the object they see during this period and the lighthouse will be redirected to this place. Therefore, the headlights will not irregular blinking when the eyes blink.

There is no further information on when is the release date, but it should be announced in the coming 18 months.
