Land Rover reveals ‘Transparent Hood’ Technology

Ahead of next week’s New York Auto Show, Land Rover has unveiled their “Transparent Bonnet” virtual imaging concept that gives a new level of driver awareness via a “see-through” augmented reality view of the terrain ahead, making the front of the car virtually invisible from inside the cabin. Cameras located in the vehicle’s grille capture data used to feed a Head-Up Display, effectively creating a ‘see-through’ view of the terrain through the bonnet and engine bay. Not only does a driver see this augmented reality view that captures the front of the car, but it also gives a comprehensive angle and position of the front.

The Transparent Bonnet will be just one bit of many new technologies being unveiled next week at the NYIAS as part of Land Rover’s Discovery Vision Concept car.
