Motorbike headlamp keeps the light beam straight

July 07, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Taiwan-based firm Chang Hao Industrial Technology Co Ltd has developed a self-levelling motorbike headlamp which keeps its light beam horizontal even when the motorbike is tilted during a turn, reports Nikkei Technology Online.

The mechanism which incorporates an inclination sensor and a small motor to rotate the LED lamp mechanism, prevents the light from changing directions as the rider tilts the motorbike, which often makes it difficult for the rider to look ahead. The new system was exhibited at the 2017 Taipei Ampa & Auto Tronics Taipei trade show.
