Flexible Elastic: Fire enforced composite materials have superb elastic flexibility.This is durable for a long time.
High in Strength: Composite materials have great strength and so are used for the body part of the car for protection in any condition.

The Swarm Tail Lights

One of the most unique concepts is the magical madness of the Swarm tail lights. This concept converts our fantasies into reality and gives an end product which is simply too stunning to look at. Moreover, it seems to be straight out of the futuristic speed racing movies and also sports fantastic and extremely wild color combinations. The lights are also linked to the speed of the car and as a result, move faster as the car accelerates. This creates a fabulous effect for the onlookers as your machine speeds by. Another marvel is that instead of having to hit the turn bar when a driver turns left, the swarm lights automatically move forth from left to right depending on the direction taken by the driver. In simpler words, if the driver is leaning towards the right, the swarm will create a unique display of lights on the right side. Similarly, if the driver steers to the left, the swarm shifts to the left and the right side going completely dark. While, the mere explanation of such lights may set our tongues wagging, they are not supposed to be market ready anytime in the near future, well certainly not in this year.

The Laser Tail Lights

The laser tail lights are another concept which uses lights that are powered by a laser diode and helps in providing a clear signal to the vehicles at the back. Moreover, when there is decent visibility, these lights seem like a red light to the driver from a distance and prompts them to slow down automatically.

Features that can be the advantage
No enforcement
Analyze the outside environment
Blocking high beam use during fog
Automatically turning on high-beams
In old type of headlights there were sensors of no sun which are not effective for the tunnels for the fact that you cannot easily differentiate between the small and the long duration tunnels. However, as the new systems are being designed it seems that the driver would get all the necessary assistance and thus control the headlights in much convenient manner. With so many advantages like contrast, visibility and sensitivity limits, it seems that these systems will soon going to be the best user friendly device ever invented.
