Land Rover's Invisible Car

Tata -owned JLR introduced a new technology to give drivers a digital vision of the terrain ahead by making the front of the car 'virtually' invisible. The technology — named Transparent Bonnet — 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.

The 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, breaking new ground in visual driver assistance.
