Next-Gen ADB Headlights Exploit AI Tech

Koito Group’s Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) headlights, a technology where high beam is perpetually actuated until oncoming traffic is detected, will be supported by artificial intelligence supplied by Reality AI. Current versions of ADB headlights available in Japan and Europe make use of traditional machine vision techniques to detect the presence of other vehicles ahead of the car so that portions of the beam can be selectively dimmed. This reduces glare for other motorists, improving drivers’ nighttime visibility and improving safety for everyone on the road. This new concept will make use of artificial intelligence to enable much higher beam resolution, as well as reduce false positives.

 

Koito collaborated with Reality AI, a New York and Maryland startup whose expertise is in using machine learning techniques with sensor signal inputs, after an extensive search of the market for automotive-related AI technology. Reality AI is unique in that classifiers and detectors created with its technology can be deployed at the “edge” on cost effective hardware.
