Land Rover creates invisible hood

By ,

Land Rover has developed an augmented reality system allowing drivers to see through the hood of their vehicle. It will officially debut at the New York Auto Show next week.

How does it work? A camera mounted under the front fascia captures the terrain, and a projector displays the image onto the windshield. Obstacles thus become easier to spot and avoid, especially on inclines.

While most Land Rover owners will never climb mountains, the company insists the new system will come in handy when parking in tight surroundings, for instance.
