Abstract:
The present invention relates to automobile headlamps, to be more precise static bending lamps. It is well experienced that driving at night times can be quite hectic as the ordinary headlamps do not trace the trajectory of the vehicle. This brought the idea of bending lamps; two different approaches have evolved for the same functionality, either to turn the light source or a projector, called dynamic bending and the second approach is to provide a secondary lamp at the corner focusing location for fulfilling the purpose. The present systems rely on the steering wheel sensor and the vehicle speed data for control. This requires the system to have a CAN transceiver module adding to the cost. In this paper, we will be focusing on static bending lamp in which the fixed-focus positioned lamp will be used for lighting the required area, moreover this gives design a more robustness and cost beneficial control system for the static bending lamp. This paper presents a novel idea of a standalone system capable of providing the functionality at a reduced complexity and cost.
