Although the new system is only 20 millimeters high, it achieves the same height as larger projection lenses with a height of 40 to 60 millimeters. The module offers optimum light distribution control and design flexibility; it increases driving safety and comfort while reducing energy consumption. Together, these features make the module the ideal solution for next-generation intelligent mobility.
Headlight optical systems collect light projected from an LED light source to form a light beam with a cutoff line for the low beam. Conventional systems use reflectors with coated mirrors that are prone to reflection loss, low efficiency and take up space due to their large size. Mitsubishi Electric, aiming to enhance night-driving safety by achieving superior visibility for the driver and the elimination of glare for other vehicles and pedestrians, has developed an optical module for LED headlights that is compact, highly luminous-efficient, equipped with advanced and precise beam-control functions, and offers design flexibility.
