The current ADB functions are achieved with electronics that control the operations of LEDs or LDs. ADB is also coupled with advances in technologies used for lane departure warning, automatic high beam activation, and other functions, i.e., the identification and location of other road users at night and actively limiting potential glare for those road users.The standards development also included consideration of LED life. LED lumen maintenance is a key characteristic in the general illumination application due the extensive lifetime expectations for LED T8 Fluorescent Lamps  and luminaires.

This technology can provide a nighttime forward illumination beam with benefits similar to a high beam for a driver, without the associated glare typical of a high beam experienced by other motorists, because portions of the beam are adapted, such that what would be high beam glare is perceived as low beam output.

In terms of the measurements of the LED characteristics, such as luminous flux, there should not be any difference relative to the application in which LEDs are used, whether they are for automotive lighting or for general illumination.The current ADB functions are achieved with electronics that control the operations of LEDs or LDs.
