Definition (2):

Dusk-sensing headlights are headlights that turn on when it begins to get dusk/dark. They turn on automatically when activated.

Modern cars have dusk-sensing headlights setting that senses external light for determining if it is below a specific amount, they turn on automatically. This feature is also known as an auto headlight or intelligent headlight setting. This setting when activated turns on the headlights automatically in case of dawn or fog driving conditions.

Sometimes, this feature also turns on the headlights automatically upon the wipers’ about 5 swipes. Someone will obviously turn on the wiper when it is snowing or raining. This feature automatically ensures that the car remains visible despite severe weather conditions. The driver does not need to worry about turning the headlights on manually in case of adverse driving situations. This feature serves with the following advantages:

  • Head-on crashes consisting of red end crashes can be drastically reduced.
  • Motorcycle or bike and pedestrian crashes can be reduced or avoided.
  • Daytime crashes because of adverse weather conditions can be importantly reduced than the night time crashes statistically.
