Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach uses digital light to compliment strangers
Mercedes-Benz has released a new video showcasing what its Digital Light system can do. Equipped on a Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the video shows the car's headlights displaying various messages to passersby, tailoring each response to each person.
Digital Light packs over 1 million tiny reflectors inside the headlights that, when arranged a certain way, can display words or images on the ground ahead of the vehicle.
It can function as a different kind of heads-up-display, offering warnings about low-grip surfaces or blind-spot monitoring on the road ahead of the driver. It can also be used to let pedestrians know when they have the right of way, putting an arrow or crosswalk stripes on the road.
