Land Rover’s Discovery Vision concept takes its name literally. The SUV uses a front-mounted camera to record the terrain and then displays a virtual rendering on a heads-up display mounted on the lower portion of the windshield. At a high angle of attack, when the view is ordinarily blocked by the vehicle’s sloping hood, this “Transparent Bonnet” feature lets the driver see and avoid obstacles like a potential oil-pan-puncturing rock. It also shows the the wheels’ position in order to facilitate precise maneuvering.
