This system presents a blueprint and a model of flexible car headlights system which focuses on CAN-LIN arranged in such an order that avoids the car crashes which more often occurs during night times or in dim light conditions or due to indefinite changes in headlight’s light. LIN-CAN are serial network protocols used for communication between different parts in vehicles. Local Interconnect Network transport was particularly expected for minimal low-cost communication between savvy sensors in car applications and Controller Area Networks are used keeping in mind the end goal to enhance overall performance and for security reasons. This research adopts CAN-LIN buses for communication, catching car’s controlling steering wheel angle, car’s tilt angle and luminance of the surroundings and further computing and sending the actual output to the headlights to act upon. This design upgrades the security and comfort of the general people inside vehicle and quality of the vehicle being driven.
