Corners and turns are especially challenging since headlights only illuminate a portion of the turn, making potential dangers like a stalled vehicle or a pothole even more dangerous.

This is where adaptive motorcycle headlights, such as those made by Milwaukee-based firm J.W. Speaker, come in. As the motorcycle leans into a curve, the onboard sensors of an adaptive headlight calculate the lean angle (the angle at which the motorcycle enters the curve) and uses it to determine where to direct the lighting array, dynamically illuminating dark areas that traditional headlights would ordinarily miss.
