Conceptual LED headlamps see around corners
White LED strip headlamps supplied by Valeo for Renault's latest concept car are capable of dynamic directional lighting.
As well as adding stylistic detail, the LED lamps also respond to the steering angle of the vehicle, and offer all the advantages of dynamic directional lighting in terms of safety and comfort.
The Renault Fluence achieves a similar effect with fixed LED lights that can be adjusted electronically. The individual LEDs within the curved twin strips can be illuminated individually to alter the direction of the beam. In a right-hand bend, for example, as soon as the wheel is turned, the LEDs on the right side are gradually lit from the inside outwards, so that the inside of the bend is illuminated.
