If you’ve ever driven at night, you know how it annoying it can be when an oncoming driver doesn’t turn the car’s high beams off. Not only is it tough on the eyes, but it can make seeing lane lines and road markings hard to see. The majority of us have forgotten to turn off our brights at one time or another, but Mazda has been implementing a new safety feature into many of its vehicles that’s designed to keep it from happening. Read on for more information about Mazda’s High Beam Control and how it works!

Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE® High Beam Control
Mazda’s High Beam Control, which is part of the automaker’s i-ACTIVSENSE® safety innovations, uses a windshield-mounted camera to keep an eye on what’s happening directly in front of your vehicle. Equipped vehicles usually drive with high beams on at night, and if the system determines an oncoming vehicle is approaching or you are approaching another vehicle in the same lane, High Beam Control will automatically turn your brights off for you. Once you have passed the vehicle, the high beams will automatically turn back on. Similarly, if the system detects you are entering a well-lit area, High Beam Control will again turn off the brights. Interested in seeing how the system works in real-world situations? Take a look at the video below!
