Here at Mercedes-Benz of Jacksonville, we know we sell cars that offer many unique features. When you browse the Mercedes-Benz models for sale on our lot, you’ll find the latest safety features and incredible in-car tech that you didn’t even know you needed. The Mercedes-Benz brand continues to innovate, recently debuting a new kind of lighting system that could make drivers safer than ever.

The new “Digital Light” feature uses a small LED that contains more than a million micro-reflectors for each headlight. New hardware and software is used to display a variety of light patterns that can warn a driver about a number of hazards. So far this system has shown off the ability to warn about inclement weather, like a snowflake that can be displayed on the road to indicate that the outside temperature is below freezing. Other displayed symbols could work in tandem with existing safety systems, like lane departure or blind spot warning systems.

The Digital Light could even project lines on the road that show how wide the vehicle is. This can be especially useful in situations with narrow lanes or on roads where construction is going on. The Digital Light tech also has the capability to point out pedestrians on dark roads. No matter the situation, this new technology is designed to keep you safer and more aware of your surroundings. Although it may be a long way off, you can keep an eye on this blog to learn more about the latest Mercedes-Benz features and technology.
