Land Rover developed a new concept system that helps drivers see beyond an obstructed view. For drivers who frequently tow objects such as horse trailers, it can be nearly impossible to see what is behind the vehicle. This system makes it easier and safer for drivers to see other vehicles when their view is obstructed.

The concept system is called the 'Transparent Trailer' and it is primarily designed for drivers who tow horse trailers. The system works through the use of a camera that is attached to the item being towed. This camera then transmits images to a visual display that is embedded in the driver's rear-view mirror. The technology thus allows the driver to see beyond an obstructed view. There is also a secondary camera and a pressure sensitive mat that will alert the driver if the cargo in the trailer moves while the vehicle is in transit.

The system ultimately makes it safer for drivers to travel safely to and from the stables.
