With the computers, machinery, electronics technology, road vehicle testing makes large-scale, rapid and accurate access to the road use of information possible. Detection of the vehicle speed video camera system in accordance with the ordinary into the camera, high-speed video cameras and digital cameras, high-speed camera which is mainly used for road surface cracks, pits and other damage to the state of image acquisition. However, in the use of high-speed cameras, most cars used in testing is an ongoing source of exposure. As a result of low intensity light source, when used in practice are often necessary to increase the exposure time to achieve high-quality image data. Therefore, the light irradiation intensity can improve the quality of image data. Pulsed xenon lamp and the brightness will be able to resolve the contradiction with the accompanying heat. Discharge when it is sending a strong light, but a very short flash duration, so the heat was less affected. Because of the instantaneous optical power, and to restore the good image of the levels [1].

Pulsed xenon lamp in order to extend the life span and improve the efficiency of photoelectric conversion, must be developed pulsed xenon lamp for the drive system. This article is designed to meet the pulse xenon lamp from the work of the Hui, pre-combustion and high-voltage discharge of the drive system in three stages. Pulsed xenon lamp drive system to control the use of Microchip dsPIC30F chip.
