Valeo 's XtraVue uses cameras to make your trailer ' invisible ' at CES 2019. No need to worry about what's behind your trailer , because you can see straight through the thing. Nissan announced Friday that it will display something called " invisible -to-visible" (i2V) technology at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.

This tech makes your trailer " invisible ". It even lets you see through cars. Color printout makes you invisible to AI.

According to many, poor visibility is one of the main disadvantages of modern cars compared to older, more traditionally-designed vehicles. A few companies have already presented different tech solutions to improve the overall visibility, including a transparent A-pillar and even a transparent hood which is now an option on the all-new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. The Paris-based automotive supplier Valeo is taking things a step further by introducing a technology that lets you see through your trailer or caravan.

tailgate back - up camera and an auxiliary camera attached to the back of your trailer , the Sierra HD can show you what's hiding behind your trailer . The trailer -mounted camera will be offered as an accessory, and GMC says the feature only works with hitched box or camping trailers up to 32 feet

While Valeo ’s new innovation in rear-view tech won’t actually vanish your trailer , it does the next best thing thanks to clever camerawork. It places a camera on the back of the trailer or caravan and then inlays its visuals over the main rear-view camera output from the car itself.

Debuting at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show, the so-called XtraVue Trailer system uses several cameras mounted at the back of the vehicle and the rear of the trailer or caravan. The image from all sources is combined into a single homogenous image which shows what’s happening behind the vehicle on an additional small display somewhere on the center console. The overall idea is brilliant but we wish the device could be integrated into the factory infotainment system and use its display. That’s probably in the works.

According to Valeo, maneuvers should be “easier than ever, whatever the size of the trailer or caravan being pulled” with drivers easily changing “lanes, reverse and park, all with full control over their environment.”
