In a recent issue of Sensors magazine, writer Andrew Glascott-Jones explains how MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes are now used in tilt measurement and headlight leveling applications for automobiles.
The article discusses the requirements for a headlight leveling system for both static and dynamic leveling, including the design calculations for static leveling and the more complex system considerations for dynamic leveling.
Although HID headlights improve the safety of night driving for users, they can cause glare and can (briefly) blind the driver of an oncoming vehicle on any two-lane road. This makes it more difficult for approaching drivers to identify pedestrians and other road hazards. For example, 4% of respondents to a survey cited glare as contributing to their accident
