Intel and the National Taiwan University are working on 'talking' tail lights for vehicles

'Talking' tail lights could be the future of vehicles, Intel is helping out with the tech

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.
