Evolution driving assistance system they will bring us to a vehicle that can handle itself, apart from humans. But because there is still a long way to go, there are engineers who are still determined to improve one's skills behind the wheel.
This is a surprising case ClearSight (clear view) Land Rover, a system that allows the driver to see the land transiting through the hood and engine.
Range Rover Evoque 2019.
It's not something magical or a chemical compound. British brands use radar and camera so that in some way the driver can see through the subject.
To achieve this, he uses a camera located in the new front sector Range Rover Evoque and two mounted on side mirrors, one on each side. And it transmits everything and in real time to a screen located in the center console.
As shown in the picture, the quality of the image resolution sent is very high and projects as if using a wide-angle lens.
With this system, many benefits are obtained. One of the big disadvantages of SUVs is them poor visibility right in front of the front sector, because of the height of the stem.
This system allows you to see everything below it, even if you have children or animals.
The field of vision offered by ClearSight to the driver starts from the height of the rearview mirror, with a width of 1.2 meters on each side of the vehicle, and extends to 8.5 meters forward, where the width of the vision reach 15 meters.
This system can provide excellent assistance when traveling through complicated terrain, where many times you see us correctly where you stepped on the vehicle. What is indicated, in offroad practice, is to get off the vehicle before any complicated obstacles to ensure where we will pass. With this technology, it is not needed.
This system is very helpful to find out where you step on the vehicle.
On the other hand, what is transmitted by this technology is not a simulation. That is to say If a child starts playing under a vehicle or there are animals, we will also see it. The operation is available up to 30 km / hour.
Land Rover has shown ClearSight for the first time 2014, but it was installed in a prototype and still under development. The new generation of Evoque has it in its reach.
But it also brings other devices that use it augmented reality, although in this case it is looking back. This is a smart rearview mirror, which can function like that or as a screen that transmits images.
This will be a normal vision if we carry very large objects in the trunk.
Equipped with a camera located in the rear sector, which offers a a much broader field of vision, up to 50 degrees, compared to 25 degrees of conventional mirrors.
This allows us to continue to see what is happening behind the vehicle even when we carry large objects in the trunk that normally block our vision.
With ClearSight you can look back even with luggage up.
According to the brand, the camera is located at an angle that will avoid producing glare from the lights of other vehicles and is covered by a hydrophobic film that holds water.
The camera offers a field of vision two times wider than a conventional mirror.
