Land Rover have revealed “Transparent Bonnet”, a virtual imaging concept, with extra cameras embedded within the front grille.
The Transparent Bonnet’s extra cameras would connect to a heads-up display in the windshield to give drivers a view of the road under their car’s bonnet.
The displayed images are in the driver’s field of view providing the effect of looking through the hood at the ground below.
Dr Wolfgang Epple, Director of Research and Technology for Jaguar Land Rover, said:
“We believe the next 25 years will be the most exciting and dynamic the automotive industry has ever experienced. There will be huge strides in environmental innovation, in safety and capability.
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.”
