Land Rover reveals Transparent Bonnet virtual imaging concept
New level of driver awareness with a 'see-through' augmented reality view of the terrain ahead, making the front of the car 'virtually' invisible from inside the cabin
Technology provides full visibility of what is underneath and in front of the car, with total clarity of otherwise hidden obstacles
Transparent Bonnet is part of a suite of new concept technologies to be showcased in Land Rover's Discovery Vision Concept car at the New York International Motor Show
Pioneering technology is being developed to give Land Rover drivers a digital vision of the terrain ahead by making the front of the car 'virtually' invisible.
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. The technology, named Transparent Bonnet by its creators, shows how advanced technology will take Land Rover's unrivalled capability to the next level.
The technology 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.
It is on rare occasion that I am able to talk about a vehicle being turned into a rally machine, and it is even a more rare bird that the basis for said rally vehicle is a lux off-roader like the Evoque. Oh happy day!
The link to a Derbyshire Company's website happened upon my computer this morning, and I was excited to see what bit of awesomeness was awaiting that I had been forwarded. I have a special fondness for .co.uk domains for some reason. I click, and what do my eyes see? This bit of home grown British ingenuity. Man this thing looks good! The Milner LRM-1 is the latest in a series of off road racers that draw from over 30 years of cross country racing. These guys are no puffs, and this machine is to be taken seriously.
Loads of suspension built in to what looks like a STRONG cage. The LRM-1 has a full space frame chassis with double wishbone, fully independent suspension, with a composite body shell scaled to 4/5 the size of a standard Evoque. They made sure to maintain the body lines so that it retains that instantly recognizable Evoque look.
The first production car benefits from a motor "borrowed" borrowed from it's brother, Jaguar. The 5.0 V8 supercharged engine produces in excess of 550BHP and 680Nm of torque. The transmission is a 6spd sequential gear box driving a Milner transfer box and Milner differentials with Quaife centres throughout.
If you would like one of these turn-key off-road racers, just dial Milner up and tell them what powerplant, what transmission setup you would like, and show up a matter of weeks later with a pile of cash.
