dc.description Every automobile has rear view mirrors and side view mirrors to make it easier for the driver to look at the rear side of the vehicle easily. They help the driver in moving the vehicle backwards without anyone's assistance. Usually, the rear view mirrors are located at the top of the windscreen and they are adjustable according to the position and viewing angle of the driver. During night times, the light from the head lights of the vehicle behind is reflected and falls directly on the eyes of the driver. This light reflection from the rear view mirrors causes a strain on our eyes and results in our eyes becoming tired and drowsy, consequently results in lack of alertness and can result in an accident. People who drive for more than 100 miles during the night experience this type of strain in their eyes. This can be avoided by reducing the reflection of light from the side view mirrors by implementing the process of electro chromism in the mirrors. By means of this process, we will be introducing a glass that changes the intensity of reflection when a voltage is applied. en_US
