DescriptionAdaptive Headlights for the Trajectory of a Vehicle
Abstract: In an approach for determining the illumination necessary along a vehicle's planned trajectory, a processor receives information relevant to the trajectory of a vehicle. A processor estimates the position of the vehicle at the particular time on the trajectory of the vehicle, using the data from the sensors. A processor estimates an illumination of the trajectory of the vehicle, using the model of the illumination of the road network and the data from the sensors, wherein a threshold is employed. A processor determines the threshold is exceeded. A processor changes a setting of the at least one headlight on the vehicle. A processor determines the threshold is exceeded. A processor alerts the user of the vehicle when adjustments to the at least one headlight that are necessary to illuminate the trajectory of the vehicle exceed physical limitations of the at least one headlight.
