Land Rover Creates “See Through” Hood

Posted on April 14, 2014

Rear-facing cameras have replaced craning your neck while reversing. Screens are about to replace windows on private jets. Now, Land Rover is using streaming video to virtually remove an SUV’s hood.

The Discovery Vision Concept, set to debut at the New York Auto Show, uses a front-facing camera to see what’s ahead, then projects the image on the lower portion of the windshield so the driver can see “through” the hood. Land Rover calls it a “Transparent Bonnet,” and besides an image of the terrain, the display shows the angle of the front wheels, the degree of the slope the driver is traversing, and the SUV’s speed.
