Volvo Lets You Keep the High Beams on at All Times

Active High Beam Control

For most, high beams are passive. They require the driver’s interaction to go back and forth toggling manually. If a driver forgets, they can blind oncoming traffic very easily. It’s not just annoying. It’s potentially dangerous.

Volvo is developing Active High Beam Control, a combination of a sensor as well as light blocking mechanisms that know where cars are both in front as well as to the side. When a car is seen by the sensor, it blocks the high beams in that particular area without turning the high beams off altogether.
