Ford's New High Beam System Adapts Its Shape to Prevent Flash Blindness

American automaker Ford has developed an exceptionally impressive and useful headlight system, dubbed the Glare-Free High Beam system, that is designed to prevent the problem of flash blindness that can be caused when someone flashes their high beams in your face as you're driving along.

High beam systems can be a boon if you spend a lot of time driving on highways in the dark, but some drivers unfortunately forget to lower their beams in the face of oncoming traffic. The Glare-Free High Beam system gets around this by automatically adapting the shape of its beam with the help of a camera and dynamic LED headlamps.

Ultimately, this high beam system could prevent accidents and save lives by exterminating flash blindness on the highway.
