A very interesting approach and quite cool. But I have some doubts. For me, the most annoying during rain is the glare from the wet road itself. When very wet, you can't see the markings (because of glare) which can lead to dangerous situations. The article does not mention this. And a second thing: shouldn't we be ditching headlights completely and go for a more sci-fi approach like HUD's, sensors...? Predator did quite a good job...

Submission + - Texas college take over drone by GPS spoofing (

With just around $1,000 in parts, Humphreys’ team took control of an unmanned aerial vehicle owned by the college, all in front of the US Department of Homeland Security. Iran has claimed to use a similar technique to capture a US surveillance drone last year. The US military denied this and claimed 'Iran had nothing to do with the UAV crash landing'.
