This report deals with design and fabrications of automatic dim and dip of the light “AUTOMATIC LIGHT-DIM AND DIP CONTROL FOR AUTOMOBILES”. The number of vehicles on our roads is burgeoning day by day. This is turn forced almost all this vehicle manufactures to think about the extra safety instruments and electronic controls to attach with these products for giving the users a safety derived in all road conditions through a mass flow traffics .If asked, one should always mention that the right driving is very cumbersome due to the dazzling light problems and the frequent dipping of head lights by manual means that often cause fatigue to the driver particularly at the time of peak traffic. So naturally to get rid of this perennial problem, an automatic mechanism has to come up to dip and dim the headlamp automatically whenever required. For keeping a motor vehicle under perfect control and reins of the driver different types of control and accessories are provided in an automobile around the driver seat, on the dash board and at the the foot board. Simply, an automatic dimmer and dipper is a unit . which can automatically judge when the head light beam needs to be lowered, and which dip the headlamp from which the beam to a dipped beam. As the dipper unit is well connected to the lighting system of the vehicle , we have to look short into discussing the wiring diagram or the construction of automatic dimmer and dipper.
