Lexus was the first to introduce LED lighting in its flagship model back in 2007, as well as adaptive high-beam lights that maximise illumination, while reducing the risk of dazzling other drivers.
BladeScan takes this one step further.
Through wizardly tech and rotating mirrors, the new headlights can light up areas usually hard to see, such as road margins, and lights up signs and pedestrians earlier.
Pedestrian recognition has been increased to 56 metres from 32 metres.
Now, it might take a while for such tech to filter down to the more affordable models, but it certainly is encouraging to see that car makers are paying serious attention to this important aspect of road safety.
For us plebs, we can make a difference by making sure that all lights are as bright as they can be.
Bulbs are replaced, lights are clean and free of build-up, and headlight dip function works properly.
Being able to identify pedestrians early saves lives. The change begins with you.
