Equipments that follow your eyes isn't a new technology.
Couldn't be hard to make the headlights follow them.
But it is somewhat embarrassing when you meet a pretty woman on the road and her butt will be lit up by my lights. 😞
Originally posted by DeepThoughtI think they worked that into the algorithm for following eyes. They don't want to blind oncoming drivers. It's a pretty smart system.
Nice idea, but there's a problem. If the beam is pointed directly at what one looks at then drivers will be dazzling each other as they look straight at the front windscreen of the oncoming cars. The system has somehow to be able to distinguish between the driver looking ahead into the distance, with no oncoming traffic - good time for main beam - from the driver looking at an oncoming vehicle - bad time for main beam.

A better system would be one that identifies object in front of the car and illuminates them - such as that cyclist in dark clothing that you didn't spot.
