Land Rover reveals Transparent Bonnet virtual imaging concept
Pioneering technology is being developed to give Land Rover drivers a digital vision of the terrain ahead by making the front of the car â€˜virtuallyâ€™ invisible.
Cameras located in the vehicleâ€™s grille capture data used to feed a Head-Up Display, effectively creating a â€˜see-throughâ€™ view of the terrain through the bonnet and engine bay, breaking new ground in visual driver assistance. The technology, named Transparent Bonnet by its creators, shows how advanced technology will take Land Roverâ€™s unrivalled capability to the next level.
The technology enables a driver climbing a steep incline or manoeuvring 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.
