Ensuring forward visibility for the driver and notifying the presence of the car, headlamps are items indispensable for driving in the dark and, at the same time, assume a key role in the design as part of the frontal design of the vehicle. Headlines have continually evolved toward further brightness, beauty and safety, and light sources have shifted from incandescent lamps to halogen lamps. And now there are high intensity discharge (HID) lamps emitting light close to that of the sun. Casings have also diversified from conventional lens-cut types to multi-reflector (MR) headlamps of Stanley's original design, projector and free ellipsoidal types.
In recent years, we have accelerated the development of LED head lamps that are kind to the environment.
The adaptive front-lighting system (AFS) is a headlamp orientation control system that aligns the headlamps to the steering angle and shines light in the direction being traveled during cornering to provide better visibility. This system enables an improvement in safety during nighttime driving and a reduction of accidents.
Rear combination lamps
Rear combination lamps functionally integrate communication signals from rear lights to inform the presence of the car to other cars behind it, stop lamps indicate that the brake is activated, turn signal lamps give a flashing warning light on the side of the vehicle toward the direction which will be made and backup lamps assure the safety of the rear side of the car and indicate that the vehicle is moving backwards. Combination lamps offer safety, high functionality and an excellent design. Stanley seeks to realize ideal lamps driven by cutting-edge technology.
High mount stop lamps
High mount stop lamps have quickly become popular since they became obligatory in the US in 1985. Applying highly bright LEDs of the original design to the lamp's light sources, Stanley created the first-in-the-world LED high mount stop lamps ten years ago. It is now employed globally, contributing to safe driving.
