Vehicle lighting maker Valeo's new Bending Light system has won the second prize of the prestigious Automechanika 2002 Automotive  Innovation Awards in the 'Auto parts' category. The award was made by a jury appointed by Messe Frankfurt, the organisers of Automechanika 2002. Valeo's Bending Light system is an intelligent headlight system that significantly improves the illumination of road curves and intersections by automatic directional control of the vehicle's headlamp beams that "turns light into road bends" to optimise forward night-time visibility.
