There's a collaboration project between chipmaker Intel and the National Taiwan University, which could lead to smarter headlights for vehicles that could guide you out of a rainstorm, or communicate between vehicles.
The technology would be capable of knowing what other vehicles around you are up to, whether they're speeding or about to take a turn, or brake, by receiving data from their tail lights. When certain data is received - such as a vehicle ahead of you braking heavily - your car will automatically slow down or accelerate automatically, without you doing a thing.
There's always the option to manually override this, for those who like to stay in control. Engadget went hands-on with a concept event at a Research @ Intel event in San Francisco where a couple of scooters were used for an example.
