In terms of technology, the light emitted by an LED still appears whiter than that of the xenon headlights. In fact, this light is blue, but it crosses one phosphorus layer which absorbs a large part of the blue spectrum and gives the LED its very special ultra white color.

In addition to the fact that the LEDs ensure a duration of 10 to 15 times higher to that of halogen lights, are devices a low energy consumption.

The dipped headlights consist of four LEDs combined to form an extremely powerful beam of light. The high beam function is provided by the matrix module consisting of twenty LEDs which add their beam to that of the dipped headlights. This is where the adaptive function of the system, since these twenty modules turn on and off and change their light output individually and continuously, depending on external conditions.

There camera positioned at the top of the windshield analyzes the environment for adapt lighting and intensity of the various LEDs of the matrix. So, the light beam adjusts automatically for optimal lighting, allowing you to keep the high beams active at all times without ever dazzling other vehicles and people.

The high beam segments come in fact turned off around the detected car to create a shadow tunnel, so that the driver of this other vehicle is not dazzled, while the surrounding environment remains well lit.

Peugeot Matrix LED Technology headlights adapt their brightness according to speed

In urban mode when the vehicle is traveling between 0 and 50 km / h, the dipped headlights are on. In high beam mode at speeds included between 50 and 110 km / h, the front headlamps switch to high beam. This means that light up 100% of their potential, but without dazzling other road users, illuminating around them.

Finally on the motorway, when the speed exceeds 110 km / h for at least 5 seconds, the Peugeot Matrix LED Technology headlamps change the angle of the light beam of the high beams (+ 0.4%) to illuminate further away.

As soon as the vehicle travels for more than 5 seconds to one speed below 90 km / h, the beam of light returns to his original corner opening of the light beam.
