Cadillac adaptive headlights and night vision
Naturally, vehicle safety is a priority for General Motors and its team of engineers. Just about every new Cadillac coupe, sedan and SUV comes with the latest active safety features as standard equipment. Of the suite of active driver safety systems available on Cadillac vehicles, adaptive head lights are as important to avoiding accidents as any of the other systems. Don Wheaton customers first getting involved with Cadillac as a brand often have a lot of question about what adaptive headlights actually are and how they work. When it comes to avoiding obstacles, having headlights that move with the vehicle will prove to be invaluable.
What are adaptive headlights?
At the most basic level, adaptive headlights are a way of improving visibility in low-light conditions by having a vehicle’s headlights actively move as a vehicle moves – for instance, around a sharp curve. Headlights that don’t move with a vehicle can cause blind spots on the side of the road where moving obstacles come from, like animals or pedestrians. For most new Cadillac vehicles, adaptive headlights are combined with new bi-xenon light technology which is much brighter than standard incandescent light bulbs. Automatic dimming is another commonly associated feature.
Adaptive headlights vs. night vision
When it comes to the latest technology available, the Cadillac CT6 can be found with just about everything the automaker offers. The enhanced night vision system found with the new Cadillac CT6 offers an even better view of the area in front of the car. An image is displayed at the center of the gauge cluster. This splits the difference between giving the driver information he or she may need while being as unobtrusive and non-distracting as possible.
