Fast and precise.
Mercedes-Benz is incorporating the new MULTIBEAM LED technology for the first time into the new-generation CLS-Class. The many benefits of LEDs have been innovatively combined with the latest in control technology. “This technology allows us to respond much faster to changes in our surroundings, and for example, to adapt the light to the new situation in the space of 10 milliseconds – something that was not possible before,” said Mercedes-Benz Development Engineer Florian Herold. A total of four control units calculate the ideal light pattern 100 times a second.
Because MULTIBEAM LED technology combines the best current light technologies and can automatically adjust the distribution of light quickly and precisely to almost any situation on the road, it constantly provides unusually bright and expansive illumination of the road and the verge without dazzling other drivers. In so doing, MULTIBEAM LED perfects and builds on the functions of the Intelligent Light System to make driving even safer in future.
