Smart Headlights Will See Through the Rain

New headlight tech could shine light around raindrops, lighting up the pavement rather than the precipitation.

Dark and stormy nights: Excellent at setting the scene for a horror movie, but horrendous to drive through. While those wipers you should have replaced six months ago are furiously trying to keep up with the downpour, your headlights are not helping matters at all. Rather than lighting up the road they’re just illuminating the raindrops, making the already terrible visibility worse.

Smart headlights would shine through the drops, lighting up the road, not the rain. Srinivasa Narasimhan, an engineer at Carnegie Mellon University, thinks he’s come up with a way to do it. Narasimhan’s concept is still in the very early phases, but the idea behind the technology is simple.
