LAND ROVER DEBUTS INVISIBLE CAR TECHNOLOGY 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.

Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge Patron's
Gerry McGovern – Land Rover Design Director
“Creative thinking, innovation and problem solving have always been some of the fundamental reasons behind Land Rover’s success. It’s extremely important we as a company develop these core skills in the next generation of Land Rover Designers so we continue to produce vehicles that are used all around the world. This is why I am delighted and honoured to be patron of the Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge as this project not only develops students creative and hands on skills but also highlights the importance of working together as a team which is what Land Rover is all about.”
Jem Stansfield – BBC One’s Bang Goes the Theory TV Presenter and Inventor
“We all know how important Engineering and Technology is to the world we live in today and how without creative and innovative thinking we would simply stand still. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) plays a massive part in creating and developing a good idea to turn it into real life. Land Rover 4x4 in Schools is an exceptional technology challenge which does just that, it encourages and develops young people’s skills in STEM subjects to not only make them more aware of STEM but to also provides them with a hands on problem solving activity. Encouraging the next generation of Engineers is extremely important to all of our futures which is why I’m honoured to be a patron of The Land Rover 4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge.”
