A new headlight technology aims to make night driving easier

A team of Ford engineers develops a new technology that makes it easier to drive at night by projecting information on the road

Ford engineers are working on new headlamp technology that can project informative images, such as road signs or directions, onto the road to improve nighttime driving.

The proposal is based on the technology known as ‘Head-up displays’ or frontal display, a system that projects relevant information for the driver in his field of vision on the windshield, or on a secondary panel.

This system seeks to prevent the driver from taking his eyes off the road to consult information relevant to the journey, such as directions or fuel level. Now Ford engineers want to move it to the headlights.

The new technology would use high-resolution headlights to project information on the asphalt, this time to improve driving and nighttime attention, especially on poorly lit roads.

Specifically, it could project information about weather changes, such as snowfall, fog, slippery surfaces or an icy road ahead, indicate the next turns or show the width of the vehicle on the road, as detailed from Ford in a statement.
