Cars today have become very smart and progressive. Headlights, however, are still quite simplistic. Despite improved reliability and light production, they simply illuminate what is in front of them. This can result in glare from snow and rain; making it difficult to see the road and obstacles in front of the driver.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute are attempting to create a programmable headlight, capable of improving visibility in a range of conditions. The goal is to create a headlight system which avoids illuminating raindrops and snowflakes in inclement weather. The system also will reduces glare for oncoming drivers by disabling the portion of the headlight aimed towards them.
