(NHTSA) proposes to allow glare-free headlights on vehicles sold in the U.S.

The technology in the so-called “matrix LEDs” consists of a grid of individually controllable lights. When sensors detect an object in front of the vehicle, the specific LEDs that would project light directly on the object shut down while the rest stay on.

At CES 2018, German lighting company Osram introduced the Evivyos adaptive headlight comprising 1,024 LEDs, each of which can be turned on or off.

“The idea of this is almost like an always-on high beam,” Osram CEO engineer Matthew Zajac explained to Digital Trends at CES. “You adapt your beam to traffic,” Zajac continued.

As seen in the image below from Osram, the headlights would illuminate the lower body of pedestrians and vehicles, but the LED that would shine in people’s eyes would shut down.

Toyota originally petitioned the NHTSA in 2016 to give manufacturers the option to equip vehicles with adaptive driving beam systems. In presenting the proposed rule change, the feds gave Toyota the nod.

“NHTSA has granted Toyota’s petition and proposes to establish appropriate performance requirements to ensure the safe introduction of adaptive driving beam headlighting systems if equipped on newly manufactured vehicles,” the proposal states.

The NHTSA proposal requires ADB systems meet standards for visibility and glare prevention. In addition to allowing matrix LED headlights and setting standards for high beam and low beam visibility and glare, the proposal also includes building and equipping a test track with laboratory-tested devices to measure the performance standards.

The NHTSA is asking for comments on the proposal. You can submit comments online, by mail, hand delivery, courier, or fax. The proposal includes complete instructions for comments. All comments need to be submitted in time for the NHTSA to receive them by December 11, 2018.

The PS5 rumors are heating up with reports of a potential 2020 release

Sony is obviously thinking about and working on the future and according to this information, we may possibly see the PlayStation 5 get a release date in 2021. On the contrary, Industry Analyst Michael Pachter believes the console could launch earlier. Speaking to GamingBolt in July, Pachter said he believes the console will come in 2020. This could be why Sony announced such a small number of new games during its E3 2018 event. Either way, there’s still no solid evidence of a release date for the PS5.



PlayStation 5 specs

One report claims the PS5 will feature a custom 8-core Zen CPU and a GPU based on AMD’s upcoming Navi architecture

The PlayStation 5 could use an AMD Ryzen processor. A note written by Simon Pilgrim, principal programmer of Sony’s Advanced Technology Group, revealed that he was working on improving compatibility between AMD Ryzen processors and “Zen” core architecture within the LLVM compiler stack. All of that may sound like gibberish, but the compiler stack is a key component of the development environment in PlayStation systems.

SemiAccurate’s Charlie Demerjian claims to have tangible details about PS5 devkits that are already in circulation (via WCCFTech). According to Demerjian, the PS5 will feature an 8-core Zen CPU and a GPU based on AMD’s upcoming Navi architecture, both customized, of course.

We’ve known that Navi is likely coming in late 2018/early 2019 for several years now, but details are otherwise unavailable on its capabilities. Demerjian has a history of leaking accurate console specs, so his rumors are worth serious consideration.

Another report from the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company said the company is producing a new gaming chip. If development kits have made it out to developers, new hardware production would have to be ramping up. The report doesn’t mention Sony or PlayStation by name.

On the other hand, in a report responding directly to Demerjian’s, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier said a source with knowledge of Sony’s plans laughed that the rumored specs were not accurate. According to Schreier’s reporting, early PS5 devkits may be out in the wild, but most developers seem to be unaware of them.

Improved VR support

In addition to under-the-hood power, Demerjian’s report suggested the PlayStation 5 will be built from the ground up with virtual reality support in mind. Although PSVR (or, frankly, VR in general) has not yet set the world on fire in the way that many optimistic analysts predicted it would circa 2016, Sony’s headset has been home to a few gems so far, and it’s still almost certainly the best value and most readily accessible, high-end consumer VR.

The PS4 Pro buffed up the base console’s specs in order to better support PSVR, but starting from scratch with VR as a core feature of the console will no doubt open up a lot of possibilities for developers.

PlayStation 5 games

With no official announcement from Sony about the console, developers are remaining tight-lipped if they do have PS5 devkits in hand. Several have made comments that could be construed as hints that they do, however.

During a conference in Bergen, Norway, studio heads from CD Projekt Red (Witcher series) gave a presentation that may have hinted the studio’s next epic, Cyberpunk 2077 (pictured above), could appear on the PS5. CD Project Red

The Witcher 3’s developer, CD Projekt Red, is hard at work on their next epic, Cyberpunk 2077. At a 2018 conference in Bergen, the studio heads gave a presentation about the game which included a slide with the phrase “Rich, true-to-life visuals built on current and next-generation technology.” That could mean a lot of things, of course, but one could interpret that as a nod to the fact that they are simultaneously developing the game for both the current- and next-generation of consoles, of which the PS5 would have to be one.

Similarly, Gran Turismo Sport creator Kazunori Yamauchi made a comment that could suggest they are already tinkering with the PS5. On a studio tour, he told Finder.com that new cars take so long to develop because they are “building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today.” He also mentioned that he thought it “would be no problem to run it at 8K even,” which is well above what the PS4 Pro is capable of putting out.

Sony’s own Death Stranding, which is planned for a PlayStation 4 release, could be coming to the PlayStation 5. Speaking to GamingBolt, industry analyst Michael Pachter said the game will “likely be a cross-generational title.” Sony hasn’t done this very often in the past, though a number of third-party games released on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 at the beginning of the generation. Given that Death Stranding doesn’t even have a release window yet, it seems like the most likely candidate, and would certainly be a good way for Sony to sell consoles early on.

Bethesda Softworks appears to be one of the game companies most open about its ambition to release upcoming games on next-generation systems. Speaking to Eurogamer at the Gamelab conference in Spain, Bethesda game director Todd Howard revealed that the science-fiction game Starfield will be next-generation in both hardware and software. Given that Bethesda is releasing Starfield before The Elder Scrolls VI, which it also announced at E3 2018, there’s very little doubt that The Elder Scrolls VI will also release on PlayStation 5.

It could be the last PlayStation system

Game streaming services could replace traditional consoles in the future, at least if you ask Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot. Speaking to Variety, Guillemot expressed his belief that there will “one more console generation” before the industry completely moves to a streaming-only model.

Guillemot added that this technology would become more accessible to more players over time, but with the loss of net neutrality and data caps in place at many internet service providers, the market for a traditional console with physical media is still strong.
