A team at Carnegie Mellon University is developing an augmented reality system that would allow drivers to see through walls. Aimed at helping drivers avoid unseen hazards, the experimental project is being funded by Japanese car parts company Denso.

New Scientist reports:

The prototype uses two cameras: one that captures the driver's view and a second that sees the scene behind a view-blocking wall. A computer takes the feed from the second camera and layers it on top of the images from the first so that the wall appears to be transparent.
