Performance leap in light technology
The high-resolution Porsche LED headlights that feature an HD beams that are matrix-based provide high-resolution light distribution that is up to double the brightness of the previous models.
Porsche has created the technology for light that will be used in the future with its latest High-Resolution HD matrix tech. The main component of the new technology developed by Porsche in partnership with its partners is a chip which integrates over 16,000 individually-controlled micro-LEDs into a space that is the size of the size of a thumbnail. These LED chips two are utilized for each headlight . This is four for each vehicle. Headlights that use HD matrix technology, therefore, provide a high-resolution lighting distribution that can be twice as bright on a surface that is four times bigger than the previous top-quality technology.
The driver is able to benefit from the highly flexible light is now possible because of the uniformity of its illumination. Furthermore to this, there are new functions like lane lighting as well as construction and narrow-lane lights and high-beam adaptive lights for motorways. The high-performance beam transforms night into day over an altitude of up to 600 meters. A brand-new non-dazzling high beam function is utilized for approaching vehicles. Large areas between the left and right of the gap that is anti-dazzling become considerably brighter.
The latest HD matrix technology has added an additional component that is extremely efficient. Since the HD headlights of the matrix only activate only the pixels required at any particular time they use significantly less energy than other high-resolution systems, and their light output is the same.
Graphics for headlights with 4 points are also shown at night
Alongside four-point daytime driving lights as well as lighting for static corners, the latest Porsche headlight comes with two new HD matrix modules as well as two bi-functional module for the courtesy lighting as well as the additional high beam. The four primary lighting sources are placed in a four-point style that is typical of the Porsche brand. The prior top headlight model from Porsche is, in contrast it has four courtesy modules, as well as the central Matrix module that has 84 pixels.
The latest HD matrix technology is also distinct in terms of its design For it’s first time in history, iconic Porsche headlight graphics with four points that are typical from the running lamps for daylight will also be visible in the evening when this new technology is in use in conjunction with low as well as high beams. It is expected that the HD light sources will come in successive installments in various models with similar module technology, but with modified design. The development process involved, Porsche submitted over 25 patents for its new technology.
The first LED with high-resolution in the world. matrix light
The latest technology has to combine diverse, and often contradictory demands into a single system. The goal is to spread the functions of light across four headlights to improve design. However, the different sources of light must blend in a way that gives a consistent and effective illumination, while at the same time. The pre-design simulations were utilized to determine which overall layout would be the most effective for meeting all needs – including the needs of customers. This is why Porsche chose to use the latest and powerful HD Matrix LED Technology that has 16,384 pixels per unit instead of the highest resolution that’s technically possible.
The headlight’s design is well-defined. The four light modules, each one complemented by a short daytime running light strip that runs above the module, reflect the iconic four-point style of the brand both during the day and at night. The two bi-functional upper modules are identical and offer the courtesy lighting as well as an auxiliary high beam, with three LEDs.
The core of the latest HD matrix technology lies in the low-light units. Each has the same LED array and an the integrated driver for LEDs (ASIC) that produces an unimaginably high-resolution light flux within an area that is just 12.8 millimetres by 3.2 millimetres. The system controller – similar to a high-end graphics card – not just is able to activate, but also controls the intensity of all 16,384 LED arrays in just 1,024 steps. Multiple lenses each made of specific ground optical glass, are included in the 2 HD modules.
The lenses create various illumination angles. The lens with a wide-angle of the outside HD matrix module’s “illumination’ is 40 degrees of width and 10 degrees in height. The inside ‘Performance’ HD matrix module equipped with a Telephoto lens emits illumination at 20 degrees by five degrees. The light it emits is half as bright and half as wide however, it is significantly more brighter. The light emitted through these two HD modules are overlapping in the middle. This new headlight therefore blends wide illumination with intense light in the central part.
Most effective visibility possible in all conditions
The improvement in performance of light technology is attributed to the efficient production of light as well as the combination of two HD matrix modules and Bi-functional Modules. With 32,768 individually controlled pixels for each headlight and 32,768 individually controlled pixels per headlight, the HD matrix modules create high-resolution direct light. Only light that is needed is produced. This is the reason it is called an active matrix for light generation.
HD matrix light HD matrix light illuminates every horizontal 40-degree and 10-degree vertical ranges with an illuminating flux of more than 1,400 lumens. It is one of the biggest and brightest high-resolution lighting areas. It encompasses the entire range of high beams and starts right in close proximity to the car. The beam can be distributed in any way in this region and this allows it to be possible to enhance existing functions and create new ones, always with the goal to give the driver the greatest visibility at all times.
Optimized and innovative functions for more security and comfort
High beam with an auxiliary beam (high-performance high beam)If the system does not detect any vehicles ahead or approaching cars, while the auto high beam is in use The HD matrix modules change from dipped beam to high beam. The secondary high beam from the bi-functional upper modules is automatically turned on. This allows for an increase in the beam’s length as well as the effectiveness for the high beam. More than 600 metres when the road is lit.
