Effect of Maintenance on Vehicles Headlamps Lighting Intensity in Tanzania (Case Study of Tanzania)

Dr. Fredrick Michael Sanga, Joseph M. Kotini

Engineering Maintenance Improvement for Head Lamp Headlamps are important motor vehicle elements that must balance two conflicting goals: maximizing visibility for the driver and minimizing glare to other drivers, passengers and road users. However, the maintenance of motor vehicle headlamps is not given thorough attention causing road accidents at night and discomfort glare to road users. The main objective of this study was to develop effective maintenance system for improving motor vehicle headlamps lighting intensity in Tanzania. Factors that affecting motor vehicle headlamps lighting intensity are assessed and maintenance actions for improving motor vehicle headlamps lighting intensity are developed. The experiment/measurement and visual observation were the tools used in the study and data were analyzed multilinear regression analysis. The results show that main seven factors contribute to poor motor vehicle headlamps lighting intensity as identified through experiment/measurement using beam setter with lux meter. Among seven factors; improper alignment of motor vehicle headlamps is the major problem as obtained from the analysis. Maintenance for proper vehicle lightning (Vehicle Maintenance Management)
