The High Beam Assistant switches automatically between low beam and high beam depending on the lighting situation. The assistant also makes sure you do not dazzle oncoming drivers. Thanks to this system, you can leave your high beam on and fully concentrate on driving through the twilight and night.
With the High Beam Assistant, a front facing camera integrated into your BMW's interior mirror detects the headlights of oncoming vehicles at a distance of up-to 700 metres and automatically switches to low beam. From a distance of up-to 400 metres the camera also detects if you approach a vehicle travelling in the same direction ahead of you and switches to low beam, making sure you do not dazzle other drivers. As soon as you are the only vehicle on the road, your high beams will automatically reactivate, allowing you to once again have the best possible visibility.
Installation is straight forward. After purchasing the feature via the ConnectedDrive Store, simply download the Remote Software Upgrade to install the application in your vehicle. After a short activation period, your High Beam Assistant is ready to use. Once it has been enabled, you will find a detailed description of this feature in your vehicle’s integrated operating manual.
