Varlakati, S., Yogaraja, V., and Sudharsan, S., "Self Adaptive Front Lighting Mechanism for the Fixed Headlamp Mounted Two Wheelers," SAE Technical Paper 2013-26-0065, 2013, doi:10.4271/2013-26-0065.
A sports segment two wheelers should never compromise in styling, performance and safety. One of the styling and performance improving feature is adding fairing to the vehicle with the headlamp fixed in it. The headlamp will not rotate with the steering system causing visibility issues to the rider during cornering. In order to correct these visibility issues, a self adaptive front lighting mechanism has been constructed to rotate the headlamp about its vertical and longitudinal axes during cornering based on the steering angle and the vehicle lean angle. Visibility area has been increased significantly towards the inner side of the corner. This system works mechanically to make it affordable in Indian market.
