Toyota has prepared a new system-beam, called LED Array Adaptive High Beam System (LED Array AHS). NEW appears on some models of Japanese brand in 2015, and will allow drivers a better view onto the pedestrian road in the dark.
Similar systems are, for example, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Opel and Volvo.

The system consists of multiple LEDs arrayed in a row in the light headlamps. The electronic control unit operates in conjunction with a set top of the windshield and a cam steering. If necessary electronics are able to change the direction of the light beam some diodes to illuminate a turn or not to dazzle oncoming cars.

In addition, the electronics may change the illumination angle depending on the speed. For example, at a speed of 15 to 40 kilometers per hour lights illuminate a larger angle, but if the car is moving at a speed of over 80 kilometers per hour, the light beam is directed less at the margins and focus on the most distant points.
Earlier, the Japanese showed a three-dimensional Head-Up Display. The device can display not only data about the speed or route, but is a warning about the dangers of, for example, enters an intersection a car.
