Title
(EN) Digital lighting apparatus for vehicle, controller for digital lighting apparatus, and control program for digital lighting apparatus
Abstract
(EN)

A digital lighting apparatus for a vehicle, which employs a reflection digital light deflector, includes a storage unit that stores digital data of a plurality of light distribution patterns and a controller. The controller selects digital data corresponding to a predetermined light distribution pattern from among the digital data stored in the storage unit and controls the reflection digital light deflector, and illuminates a road surface and the like with the predetermined light distribution pattern.
