[VIDEO] Land Rover’s transparent hood tech gets detailed
Land Rover has revealed the transparent hood tech which will come on the Discovery Vision Concept.
Did you ever think what could come out from the love of a Land Rover engineer, in charge of developing a simple engine hood, and a ninja? Well, if the answer is yes, than your place is probably not behind this monitor and you have forgotten to take your pills, but if the answer is no, don’t worry, because Land Rover has. The clip posted below is showing the bonnet technology from the Discovery Vision Concept which is transparent. Yes, “see-through” transparent.
“As our vehicles become more capable and autonomous off-road, we will ensure the driver has the confidence to allow the car to continue to progress, over any terrain. We are developing new technologies including the Transparent Bonnet to give drivers an augmented view of reality to help them tackle anything from the toughest off-road route to the tight confines of an urban car park”, said Wolfgan Epple, JLR’s director of Research and Technology.
The new “see-through” technology gives the driver a reality view of what’s up ahead and according to the car manufacturer, this makes the model invisible from the inside. The technology has become available thanks to the use of cameras installed in the grille, which record the data and they send it to a head-up display on the windscreen to generate the “invisible” view of the road ahead, on the hood and engine bay. The new technology will be officially presented on the Discovery Vision Concept, which is previewing the future Discovery generation.
