Despite having 70-75% lesser traffic during the night, 50-55% of total accidents are recorded to be occurred during this time. Occurrence of blind spot or glare effects is also a reason for these accidents. Hence our work is aimed at avoiding all such effects, improving the safety during night journey. Here, we developed a very cost effective method, which will improve the vision, illuminating the path effectively, thus eliminating the chance of accident. This system is developed using Arduino UNO micro-controller. Two servo990 motors are engaged with this micro-controller, which are mounted with LEDs, replicating the head lights of the vehicles. These servo motors are rotated by means of a multiple turn potentiometer and the light intensity is thus negotiated along the curvature of the road. Beside the system is also equipped with LDR sensor for reducing the glare effect, by decreasing the intensity of head light.
