Abstract

The increased efficiency of LED headlights causes ice and snow accumulation on the headlight lenses. This project explores an LED headlight heating system to prevent accumulation. Different methods are prototyped, but the ultimate method utilizes a temperature sensing circuit to control a transparent heater. A printed circuit board is constructed and used in a mock headlight enclosure. Future recommendations for this project include designing an alternative headlight enclosure, implementing additional sensors, using pulse width modulation, and exploring the car’s interface.
