Adaptive cornering light
Adaptive cornering light is a variant of the dynamic cornering light used in cars but especially developed for motorbikes.
When cornering, motorbikes get into an inclined position, whereby the angle here depends, among other things, on the speed of the motorbike. A light cone of a cornering light simply moved to the side would therefore illuminate the road too briefly on the inside of the bend and too far on the outside of the bend. For this reason, the adaptive cornering light for motorbikes switches on additional light elements that extend the beam towards the inside of the bend and upwards depending on the angle of inclination.
Since the cornering of a motorbike can hardly be derived from the steering angle, additional sensors are needed for effective illumination. Position and acceleration sensors are installed for this purpose.
