Automatic Headlight circuit

Construction and Working

     This circuit constructed with IC 555 and LDR as a trigger input sensor, the output of IC 555 connected with the relay and head light.

When the vehicle moves during day time the LDR offers low resistance hence the positive supply given to the triggering pin this don’t turn IC 555 into pulse oscillation.

If the vehicle enters in dark condition then the LDR offers high resistance, the negative supply through VR1 rises and triggers the IC 555 hence this will activates the output so that head light turn on.

You can get datasheet of IC lm555 here.

    1. It is not working the relay is destroyed when you switch the SW1 on, I have check the diagram many times with my build I could find out what’s went wrong …
