Default Re: Land Rover reveals "Transparent Bonnet" concept

Nice concept! Although I doubt how many will actually make use of such a feature. You'll have to a serious offroader.

By the way, I didn't get the idea of what they are projecting! Is that an actual video of the road, or an animated view? If its augmented reality, then it should be an actual video of the terrain and a pair of tyres augmented graphically into it. Thats what I understood from it. How did they manage to get such a clear video of the terrain ? Shouldn't it be very dark under the car ?

Thanks, I see what you mean.

I don't think its a big thing in this particular case.

The angle variations from the drivers eye due to movement of the head are very shallow/small and its very easy to slightly blur out the image at the edges of the bonnet.

Will be interesting to see in real life.

Yeah, I'll agree with you here.

Part of me is also venting frustration at the earlier concepts seen of "augmented reality projections on the windscreen" (like a HUD). In that case, small movements of the driver's head will make a much larger difference, due to the different distances between the eye, augmented layer & final objects.

Just a thought, this Idea could well be extrapolated to see below our rear wheels & terrain around the rear wheels

While engaging reverse gear or by engaged by a switch, a head-up display kind of thing could display the same.
