Light sensors, also known as photodetectors or photo-sensors,  consists of machinery that transforms light energy into electrical energy. They are designed to perceive and respond to the presence or changes in various levels of light, transforming these variations into an interpretable form. They operate by measuring the intensity of light that reaches their sensitive surfaces. These versatile components come in several types, including photodiodes, photoresistors, and phototransistors, each with specific applications. They are widely used in diverse industries and applications such as consumer electronics, automotive, outdoor lighting, home automation, industrial manufacturing, and more. In a smartphone, for instance, a light sensor adjusts the display brightness depending on the surrounding light conditions, thus optimizing battery consumption. In the automotive industry, they are used for automatic headlight dimming and brightness adjustment in dashboard displays. In the industrial sector, they are instrumental in monitoring and controlling processes that require the precise quantification of light or color.
