With any technology comes advantages and often, disadvantages. Many consumers will immediately note the advantages of today’s cell phone technology. Mobile phones allow you to connect no matter where you may be, with just a few exceptions.

The Benefits of Active High Beam Control

Volvo is a popular name in the automotive industry. One of the reasons that this particular manufacturer is so popular is due to the steps taken to ensure consumer safety. Volvo developed the first rear facing child car seat, was very instrumental in developing the modern seatbelt and had the first head airbag installed in their vehicles. It simply stands to reason that they would lead the pack in other automotive technologies as well.
At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Volvo again showed that it is very focused on consumer safety with the introduction of Active High Beam technology. This technology allows drivers to use their high beams or bright headlights at all times during nighttime driving. While this could seem like a disadvantage to other drivers on the road, the technology itself makes it safer for Volvo drivers as well as other cars on the roadway.
Volvo’s new headlight technology works with a number of small cameras. These cameras are designed to be placed in the rear view mirror and they face toward the front of the vehicle. The small cameras can detect traffic that is coming up ahead and then will automatically adjust headlights so that a portion of light is blocked out, making it safe for other vehicles to pass the Volvo without being blinded by the bright lights.
Oncoming traffic will not be bothered by the lights and the driver of the Volvo will be safer because their visibility will be much greater since the lights stay on high …
