Mercedes-Benz turned on the spotlight on the 2015 CLS Coupe and Shooting Brake facelift's front end with the new all-LED MULTIBEAM headlamps. It features adaptive light functions as a world first in a production automobile.
The new main and high beam fixtures employ four fast responding, high-resolution precision LED light modules with 24 individual LED chips. It will work together with a camera positioned behind the windscreen that feeds the system with information on how to calculate the best possible light pattern 100 times per second and active all 24 LEDs in lamp module separately.
"The first LED headlamps with all the adaptive functions of the Intelligent Light System have been available to our customers since 2010 in the CLS", commented Daimler board member Thomas Weber.
"With MULTIBEAM LED technology the headlamps now are able to react even more quickly, more precisely and individually to changing traffic conditions. On top of this, there are expanded functions of which a driver will become directly aware, such as anticipatory camera-based curve recognition with the active light function. With such features Mercedes-Benz once again is demonstrating its role as an innovation leader in the automobile industry," he said.
