Land Rover debuts Discovery concept SUV

Land Rover confirmed that it will bring a new family of vehicles, called Discovery, to market starting in 2015 with a small SUV called the Discovery Sport. In the meantime, it's showing the Discovery concept vehicle, which is full of advanced technology. Drivers can fold down the seats and reconfigure the interior using a touchscreen, for example, or control the car remotely at very low speeds. The concept also hints at future Land Rover technologies. The doors, headlights and seatback screens can be controlled by gestures, and the powerful headlights use lasers to track objects in front of them and lower their beams in oncoming traffic. A "transparent" hood uses cameras beneath the car to project the road surface onto the windshield, giving the impression that the driver can see right through the hood and down to the road below.
