  • Patent number: 10988074
    Abstract: A method and a device for adjusting a light distribution of a vehicle headlight having a control unit for adjusting the light distribution. The headlight includes a number of light sources. The control unit includes an interface configured for receiving user-specified parameters for adjusting and/or modifying an illuminance distribution within the light distribution.

  • Patent number: 10988075
    Abstract: A vehicle lighting device includes at least one headlight, a position and/or acceleration sensor, and a control unit for adjusting a light/dark boundary of the headlight. Pitch movements of the vehicle can be detected by the position and/or acceleration sensor, and a change in the light/dark boundary due to the respective pitch movement can be compensated for by the control unit. The position and/or acceleration sensor and the control unit are arranged in the headlight or directly on the headlight.

  • Patent number: 10906452
    Abstract: A control device for a headlight for emitting light according to a headlight signal corresponding to an adjustable light distribution. The control device outputs the headlight signal, corresponding to the adjustable light distribution, to the headlight. The control device has an evaluation unit that determines object position data of the object when particles are detected using a detection unit and a self-illuminating object is detected, and to determine, as a function of the object position data, a region in which the object is located. The evaluation unit also generates data for the light distribution as a function of the region in such a way that a light intensity in the region is reduced or increased with respect to a light intensity outside this region, and correspondingly to determine and output the headlight signal from the data for the light distribution.

  • Patent number: 10696208
    Abstract: A device for adjusting the light distribution of a vehicle headlight with a plurality of light sources, includes a first control unit for adjusting the light distribution. The first control unit is coupled to a second control unit, the second control unit being coupled to at least one input device for inputting user settings for adjusting the light distribution in a user -defined manner and/or includes at least one interface for coupling to at least one input device of this type, the second control unit generating control data from the user settings and transmitting the control data to the first control unit in order to adjust the light distribution.
