Headlights of vehicles pose a great danger during night driving. The drivers of most vehicles use high, bright beam while driving at night. This causes a discomfort to the person travelling from the opposite direction and therefore experiences a sudden glare for a short period of time. This is caused due to the high intense headlight beam from the other vehicle coming towards the one from the opposite direction. In this project, an automatic headlight dimmer which uses a Infrared Sensor (IR) sensor has been designed to dim the headlight of on-coming vehicles to avoid human eye effects. This automatically switched the high beam into low beam, therefore reducing the glare effect by sensing the light intensity value of approaching vehicle and also eliminated the requirement of manual switching by the driver which was not done at all times. Arduino UNO was employed in designing the project. The Embedded C was also employed to programming. The system device was able to automatically switch the headlight to low beam when it sensed a vehicle approaching from the opposite side using IR sensor. It was observed that the maximum spread angle of the headlight was 135o. At the time the spread light from other sources reached the sensor, its intensity would be very much reduced below the triggering threshold level. The sensitivity of a photo detector determined the relationship between the light falling on the device and the resulting output signal.
