Land Rover Unveil Transparent Trailer Technology Prototype

The researchers at Land Rover are busy with the concept of a transparent trailer.

Today Land Rover revealed some major new in a new trailer. The trailer shows the demo of a new type of transparent trailer by Land Rover. The researchers at Land Rover are working on developing transparent trailer technology.

The technology will be able to eliminate blind spots while towing large items. Large items such as caravan, horse box or trailer will be easily towed by the driver.

The technology is being designed to allow the driver to clearly see vehicles coming up behind the truck. The technology will help in easier maneuverability and improve the safety while overtaking. 

The prototype of the technology has been developed. The prototype functions by combining the video feeds from the reverse and wing cameras. An additional wireless digital camera is also placed on the rear of the trailer.

The video feed from all the cameras will then be transferred to the rear view mirror. The trailer will appear see-through in this way. 

Dr Wolfgang Epple is the Director of Research and Technology at Land Rover. According to Epple the transparent trailer technology will show a view unobstructed by the trailer itself.

The view will be visible despite the size or the shape of the trailer. The prototype already offers a very high quality video image system. The high quality ensures the information is safe and effective while driving.

The technology will also make maneuvering and towing safer. The driver will be able to make the right decisions while driving. If the technology is successful the entire trailer driving experience will become less stressful.
