First up is the Dynamic Light Spot, which is an enhancement of the already available Night Vision System. Currently, the Night Vision System can recognize pedestrians and animals on the road, and warn the driver if necessary. The Dynamic Light Spot system goes one step further by using an infrared sensor to detect any animals or pedestrians that are 100 meters (328 feet) in front of the vehicle. When something is found, a beam of light is focused on the object to alert the driver.
Another innovation is the glare-free high beam assistant, which adjust the car's high beam based on the position of other vehicles. If a car, truck, motorcycle or bicycle is recognized, the light beam is masked in the area of this vehicle by a mechanism. As a result, the high beam can be left on during the whole night with the glare-free mechanism making sure not to bother other vehicles.
BMW is planning to include the Dynamic Light Spot functionality as a part of the special BMW Night Vision system. However, the German automaker did not indicate the expected date of rolling out the glare-free high beam assistant to the production models.
