The French have figured out how to make the trailer invisibleJanuary 9, 2019
Valeo demonstrated the performance of the XtraVue Trailer system
Valeo, the supplier of components and spare parts, presented the XtraVue Trailer system at the CES consumer electronics exhibition, which will allow the driver to see through the trailer, making it completely “invisible”. The electronic assistant should simplify maneuvering and parking, as well as help when reversing.
For its work, the XtraVue Trailer system uses several cameras installed in the rear of the vehicle and trailer. The picture from them is collected in a single image, which is broadcast on a separate display. At the same time, you can make an “invisible” trailer of any size.
In 2015, a similar system called Transparent Trailer was introduced by Land Rover. Data from cameras on the side mirrors and rear view camera, as well as from a wireless camera installed in the rear of the trailer or trailer, were used to create the image.
The same technology was used for the Ground View system on the new Range Rover Evoque. It makes the hood “transparent”, allowing you to get a 180-degree view of the space under the front of the car.
