About Porsche's Daylight (DRL) - For safety, light as much as possible
The other dayPorsche Panamera accident news at Hanshin ExpressWhen the husband who was watching,
This Panamera (970), it seems I was skipping, but I wondered whether the light was on. This type of Panamera, from the guy who had not yet changed Japan's daylight standards,Headlights should be on after a certain time and after a while.
By the way, the Panamera edition (970) which was in my house before"Because the daylight function is in the sleep state (invalid), it says so ..."Have you ever had a husband talk about that?
Revised the standard of Daylight
Daylight is said to be a daytime running lamp (light) in English, as its name suggests"Light to be attached to daytime for safe driving"Thing. In the previous Japan"Daylight is" Other Lights ""In the treatment,The standard of brightness is "300 candela or less"It was said. The value less than 300 candela is very dark and the European car equipped with the daylight function was too bright to clear the Japanese standards and could not light up in Japan.(Lexus and others were pretty dark only for Japanese specifications.)
for that reason,The "daylight function" of European cars including Porsche is delivered in the state of being in a sleep state in advanceIt had been.
However, since it is a European car,(140 km / h on the manual)Beyond a while for a while, the headlights are turned on for safety reasons. In Japan,"Because lighting in the daytime lights tend to be seen as those who forget to erase, there are also many drivers who dislikes it and turns off lights in the first place.It is.(If Daylight is ON, this automatic lighting will not be done, but in Japanese specification there is no daylight setting in the first place, so this function will work.Only to turn off the light it is only to turn off the light. )
Then in October 2016,In Japan also the safety standards for Daylight were revised and the standard of brightness was raised to 1,440 candela(In Europe, the upper limit was revised to 1,200 candela, so Japan may have a maximum of 1,200 candela according to European standards)The daylight of the European car also became able to light on without problems in Japan. So now, at 971 Panamera in our house, Daylight will be constantly lit up when the engine is on.
I like fairly because it is pretty cool when Daylight is on in the daytime. More than that, daylight was said to have an effect in terms of safety, "When we implemented early lighting of headlights, accidents decreased by 17% compared to the previous year and 34% in smaller models running through the city decreased accidents It seems there is data saying "I did it."(This is not Daylight but the data of headlightbut)
*Headlight early lighting laboratory "Early lighting practice business report: Nippon Express's efforts"
On the other hand, it seems that there are also opinions that it is dangerous because the driver takes the consciousness there by conversely turning on the daylight, but the husband says that, when the daylight is on, the lane changes He said that I think that the proportion of getting out in front of myself or getting out of the parking lot such as a convenience store suddenly to the road is clearly less than in the case of off.
In the case of our Boxster?
"To say that the model (model) that was on sale in Japan before October 2016 is that daylight does not work, which is inconvenient and inconvenient in terms of safety, in terms of safety," said husband But,
So, people like that will ask the merchant to do the coding to turn daylight on. However, it will be caught every time a vehicle inspection or dealer inspection is done, so it is troublesome to have to go back to the setting again each time.
after"Just a little to close your eyes"There seems to be a story that the person who sent out to the Porsche dealer intact as it is, stopped going out with a dealer.
That's why my 981 Boxster is troublesome to go on and off each time, so do not code by trader, you can set it if you plug it into your car and you can use it if you insert it again.
He said. Incidentally, this.
For her safety,Daylight is always turned on and running so that the headlights are set to AUTO so that the light automatically turns on when it gets dark even a littleToThat's it. In addition, AUTO of imported car said that it will be saved when it is a bit dark or because it scores early even in the rain.
Porsche has accelerating power and power, so the legal speed quickly reaches. So it is dangerous if you change lanes suddenly and get out before. So,"To have the preceding vehicle and surroundings notice early and to prevent accidents as much as possible"I also want to turn on the daylight and the headlights when it gets dark early and run.
