The Future May Have See-Through Trucks And Buses

I'm sure most of us have been stuck behind a large, slow-moving vehicle without the ability to really be sure we have enough "open road" to safely pass. Not really the kind of situation where you just put the hammer down and hope for the best. If you had x-ray vision, you could stare through the leading vehicle and safely choose your time to pass. Well, some research at Portugal's University of Porto has come up with a technique that can basically allow you to do just that, thanks to a couple of small cameras and some software. This is a working prototype, but think how it might look when built into production vehicles.
