New technology from Land Rover features new grille cameras that project what they view onto the the vehicle’s windshield making it appear that the vehicle’s hood (or bonnet) is in fact transparent. The video included after the break demonstrates exactly what this looks like.
Land Rover’s transparent bonnet provides real, practical benefit from drivers who frequently venture off road, where it is difficult to ascertain terrain conditions during incline changes. Land Rover says that, “the technology enables a driver climbing a steep incline or maneuvering in a confined space to see an augmented reality view capturing not only the terrain in front of the car but also the angle and position of the front wheels.”
The technology is expected to debut at this week’s New York Auto Show. It’s also fair to assume that this groundbreaking technology may find its way to other sport utility vehicles in the somewhat near future.
