According to IIHS, about half of traffic deaths occur in the dark, at dawn or dusk. The proportion of pedestrians killed in low light conditions is even greater. 

There are two types of technologies known as “adaptive lighting”:

- The first improves visibility by automatically using high beams when needed, and switching to low beams when approaching another road user. 

- The second technology, sometimes called curve-adaptive headlights, will follow the steering column to help you see on dark curved roads and over hills, moving when you steer to illuminate the road ahead.
