Ambient Light sensor is photo detector used to detect light present in immediate surroundings.  These sensors imitate how human eye’s respond to light intensity under variety of lighting conditions. Hence, it is used as backlight control in various LCD display control applications from automotive to consumer electronics. It allow automatically control backlight to offer optimum viewing experience in diverse lighting conditions. Ambient light sensors can detect broad range of ambient light, from bright sunlight to very low light that is 400 nm to 700 nm. Apart from improving visibility, ambient light sensors are helpful to reduce power consumptions further improve battery performances. Moreover ambient light sensor’s advantages such as flexibility for industrial design, small form factor, energy efficient solutions, and compactness is making it ideal for various applications in automotive, smart homes, Iot hubs, security lighting, medical devices, robotics, consumer electronics, and among others. Further, different type of ambient light sensors are available on basis range of sensing and output requirement according to application. Ambient light sensors are also used in various applications for smart home devices and building automation control such as automated closure of drapes, day time & night time determination, and protection of light sensitive goods. Moreover these sensor also offers automatic dimming of lamp office building, exterior lighting, street light and traffic signals. In same way, ambient light sensors used in automobiles to improve road safety by controlling headlamp when entering in tunnel.
