Intel/Carnegie Mellon University Develop New Headlight Technology to Combat Rain, Snow

Researchers at Intel and Carnegie Mellon University are developing new headlights that can selectively choose what and what not to illuminate, specifically snow and rain, with a said goal of illuminating the road as bright as possible.
Intel and a team from Carnegie Mellon University are working on headlights that will essentially make rain invisible by not illuminating it. It sounds simple enough, but the system is a somewhat intricate combination of a projector-type light source, light beam splitter, processor, and camera.
