Mercedes-Benz: Transparent Walls shows possible future of safety

A Web video from Mercedes-Benz shows an innovative digital installation called "Transparent Walls" that captures the action against one wall and displays it on another.

A German advertising agency highlights an innovative idea from Mercedes-Benz in this Web video.

The Mercedes-Benz safety feature, "Pre-Safe," is a collision warning system that anticipates oncoming hazards.

In the ad "Transparent Walls," the Pre-Safe concept plays out more like an art installation piece than a safety feature demonstration. Transparent Walls shows what Pre-Safe would look like as seen through human eyes.

Live video is captured on the onside of a wall and projected around the corner onto another wall--making the wall look transparent. As drivers pass, they can literally see what is coming from behind the wall, giving them more reaction time to any possible dangers.
