Turn night into day. The benefits of Audi Matrix LED headlights include not only better light but also more safety, excellent efficiency and an attractive design. Audi Matrix LED headlights split up the LED high beam into numerous small individual diodes that work in tandem with upstream lenses or reflectors.
Audi Matrix LED technology activates, deactivates or dims individual diodes depending on the situation. This means they always provide high-precision illumination and maximum light yield without requiring a pivoting mechanism.
The Audi Matrix LED technology in the new Audi S8
Experience the Audi Matrix LED technology in our trailer, and learn more about the benefits of this innovative technology.
The new Audi S8 – each headlamp carries 25 high-beam LEDs, five of them lit by a common reflector. When the light switch is set to “Automatic” and the high beam is switched on, the system is active at speeds above 30 km/h on highways and above 60 km/h in urban areas. The Audi Matrix LED headlights emit a light that has a special, crystal-like glow. Even during the day, they have a highly attractive and distinctive appearance, which is supported by new optics for daytime running lights.
Once the camera in the S8 detects vehicles, the Audi Matrix LED headlights fade the main beam in the necessary partial areas. The system works so precisely that oncoming and preceding vehicles are shielded; all other areas continue to be illuminated by the high beam. Once the oncoming traffic has passed, the high beam returns to full strength in the previously shielded partial areas. The driver has a bright, uniform illumination.
