The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class - The light - with innovative digital technology both inside and out
DIGITAL LIGHT is available as an optional extra for the first time in large-scale production at Mercedes-Benz. It enables completely new assistance functions: Warning of detected road works by projection of an excavator symbol on the roadway Warning and marking by a spotlight on detected pedestrians at the edge of the roadway Warning of traffic lights, stop signs or entry prohibition by projection of a warning symbol on the roadway Support on narrowed roadways (road works) by projection of guide markings on the roadway DIGITAL LIGHT has a light module in each headlamp with three extremely powerful LEDs, whose light is refracted and directed by means of 1.3 million micro mirrors. The resolution per vehicle is therefore over 2.6 million pixels. This enables a precise light distribution. The high beam assistant is thus more than 100 times more accurate than the 84-pixel light when blanking oncoming traffic or traffic signs. The light/dark limits and the light distribution of all other adaptive lighting functions are also displayed with significantly improved precision, which optimizes illumination in fog light, highway light or city light, for example.
A thermometer below zero, adverse weather conditions in the forecast and a slippery road surface: these are the signs that winter is well underway with the many dangers the elements can bring. The new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) technology recently introduced to the Jeep® Renegade and Compass 4xe means difficult driving situations can be dealt with in total peace of mind even in the coldest season, whether in or out of the city, on routes that often lead up mountainsides: circumstances when range, battery life and safety are really put to the test. Featuring hybrid four-wheel drive, the Jeep Renegade and Compass 4xe are 4x4 vehicles delivering a carefree winter driving experience on off-road trails as well as in the city. Compared to variants with an internal combustion engine, the Jeep 4xe models offer improved performance, guaranteeing traction for safe travel on snow and ice. The combination of an internal combustion engine and an electric motor – on which eAWD traction is based – provides higher torque than a car with a conventional combustion engine. It also offers the option of high-precision torque adjustments during take-off and while driving off-road on the most challenging terrain, when a low transmission ratio is required.
After Race-2, Brad Horstmann (Foreign of Beverly Hills) had one more reason to celebrate on the podium at Misano. As well as the track win, he also sealed the Ferrari Challenge North America – Coppa Shell title at the end of a hard-fought season. The US driver’s season rose to a crescendo, hitting the mark in the last five races. “It couldn’t have been a better weekend. To win the final ranking, I needed one more point than my rival [Kevan Millstein, ed] and instead, I got the maximum: two poles, two fast laps in the race and two wins. I couldn’t have done more”.
