In a chat today with Jennifer regarding auto high beam feature she stated:

"I don't have any information on the auto high beam function but have just sent a request to get some more language on it. I can share that they are dynamic LED headlamps so they will move in the direction of the vehicle to keep your path lit."

I had the dynamic headlamps in a previous vehicle and think it is a great feature. The headlights would move left or right x degrees with left or right steering input. It made twisty road night driving a much better experience for me.

Apologies if this has already been discussed. In a chat today with Jennifer regarding auto high beam feature she stated:

That's interesting about the dynamic headlights.

Her answer about auto high beams is surprising because the web site says it is going to be included.

I had a BMW 3 Series that had dynamic headlights and they were actually very useful. Glad to see this will have them, too!

My Volvo has Active Bending Headlamps. They are an excellent feature and they really do improve visibility at night, around corners, when there are no streetlights.

I'm excited to hear Rivian may include these. Hopefully they will not be removed.

It seems silly, to me, to include active bending lights -- which require additional hardware -- and not include auto high beams, which require no special hardware and is merely a software feature.

Where did you see that they did not have auto high beams?
The CS rep simply stated they did not have info on how they function (and I take anything from a CS rep with several large grains of salt)

This just in from Tesla. Elon is working on Einstein's Theory of Relativity to be able bend light without having to move the actual light bulb/source. Should be cool having a little nuclear power source in each headlight.

Acura hs active bending lights, already, that do not use moving parts. They use several LEDs and distinct lenses that are aimed at different angles. The RDX uses 7 lenses, I believe. The headlight controller can then enable more or fewer LEDs to extend the beam pattern wider or narrower.

Yah, same on my Model X. I assume at least Model S also has this. Don't know about 3 or Y.

I think headlights that track with steering are becoming common. Subaru does this and my 1993 Ford Taurus SHO was the first car I owned with this feature and that was many many moons ago. Puddle lights that project the Rivian logo for all 4 sides like Mercedes have would be cool for accessing our gear.
