Smart Mercedes headlights could project warning signals onto the road

Selected high-end Mercedes-Maybach models will now be equipped with the very latest in cutting-edge headlight technology. The new system is capable of not just lighting the road ahead, but projecting warning symbols and driver information as it does so.

Equipped with a digital projector, the headlights can control where the light is thrown, forming high-resolution symbols to warn drivers without them having to look down at their gauge cluster.
