A Fresh Approach to an Idea for Seeing at Night 700088

Existing automobile lighting is inadequate when meeting opposing traffic on the open road. This paper describes a relatively simple projector lamp which is self-aiming in relation to an oncoming vehicle. Its powerful beam supplements the light given by standard lower beams. An automatic shutter cuts off that part of the beam which would otherwise dazzle the oncoming driver. The remainder of the beam shines past the opposing vehicle, more than doubling the seeing-distance.
