Matrix headlights, also known as adaptive headlights or intelligent headlights, are a type of advanced automotive lighting technology that uses an array of individual LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs to create a highly customizable and adaptable beam pattern.

Unlike traditional headlights, which emit a fixed, unchanging beam of light, matrix headlights use sensors, cameras, and software algorithms to adjust the beam pattern in real-time based on various factors such as vehicle speed, road conditions, weather, and traffic.

The individual LED bulbs can be turned on or off independently, allowing for precise control over the shape and intensity of the beam. This means that the headlights can automatically adjust to provide optimal illumination without blinding other drivers or pedestrians, and can even selectively dim parts of the beam to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic.

Matrix headlights are becoming increasingly popular on high-end vehicles, and are seen as a major improvement in automotive safety, as they can provide better visibility in challenging driving conditions while also reducing the risk of accidents caused by glare or poor visibility.
