1. An automatic control system for an automotive vehicle comprising:

  • a light sensor package, the light sensor package comprising at least one semiconductor light sensing transducer and sensor logic in communication with each light sensing transducer, the sensor logic generating a discrete light signal based on light incident on each light sensing transducer over an integration period;

    control logic coupled to the light sensor package, the control logic generating at least one equipment control signal based on the discrete light signal; and

    vehicle equipment coupled to the control logic responsive to the at least one equipment control signal.
