Toyota’s Automatic High Beam System Brings a New Level of Safety to Drivers

Toyota’s Automatic High Beam (AHB) System delivers a new level of safety and assurance to drivers everywhere. AHB automatically switches between high and low beams so that drivers can have increased forward visibility when driving at night.

According to Toyota Global, “AHB detects nearby light sources such as the headlights or tail lights of vehicles ahead. The system automatically switches between high beams and low beams to ensure optimum nighttime visibility. This also helps vehicles detect pedestrians at night from further away.”

High beams are automatically activated during the following conditions:

  – Vehicle speed is 30km/h or more

 – Area in front of vehicle is dark

 – No oncoming headlights

 – No tail lights in front of vehicle

 – No strong lighting, from street lights, etc., ahead of vehicle

High beams are automatically deactivated during the following conditions:

 – Vehicle speed is less than 30km/h

 – Area in front of vehicle is not dark

 – Oncoming headlights are detected

 – Tail lights are detected in front of vehicle

 – There are significant nearby lighting sources from street lights, etc.

Here’s an example of how AHB works in action.
