Much research has found out that keeping the headlights of the car ON during the day helps a lot. The headlights during the daytime reduce the risk of road mishaps which generally happens when the vehicle isn’t visible because of certain atmospheric imbalances. Especially, in weather which is rainy, stormy, or snowy it is recommended that if the headlights remain on, then it will be an added advantage to the moving vehicles.

Intelligent temperature control will take care of condensation in led headlights so that their performance remains high.
- The headlights should have the option to switch to low beam and high beam, as this will enable the vehicle to shift to the most appropriate function so that it can be adjusted according to the condition of the traffic and lighting.
