‘Transparent’ Car Has No Blind Spots
Image projection technology helps drivers "see through" a car's back seat to reveal hazards behind them.
Researchers at Japan’s Keio University are developing a system which makes the back seat of a car appear transparent from the driver’s perspective.
Using a Toyota Prius is as a prototype, the project uses optical-camouflage technology that projects real-time footage from behind the car onto the back seat. Making the driver feel as if they are peering through the car to see behind it, tasks like backing up and parallel parking are theoretically easier.
