Mercedes creates digital camouflage for a car

Mashable - Mercedes placed a mat of LEDs across one side of the vehicle and mounting a video-shooting Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR camera on the other side to provide a one directional illusion of background camouflage The resolution of the LED pixels is not high so this mainly works at a fairly large distance.






Technology of Computer-Aided Adaptive Camouflage (7 page paper)

The camouflage is concealment by means of disguise. This article deals with a project acronym ADAPTIV of Czech Defence Research Project. This Project solution tends to adaptive camouflage by the Computer - Aided Mimicry (CAM), which is ADAPTIV Project middle-term solution. Perceptive interface between recipient and camouflaged object is visualized by means of textile modular screens. Screen´s special light semi-permeability enables front/ back projection with nearly identical light parameters. Information permeability, towards illusion creation, must be controlled by the camouflage provider by means sophisticated and mastered illusion with perfect scenarios. ADAPTIV´s financial possibilities and COTS principle ask special definition of feasibility conditions, especially recipient space position.


The mid-term tasks of Computerised Aided Camouflage & Mimicry of R&D Grant ADAPTIV were fully realized. At Fig. 3 and 4 tuned camouflage scene illusion is nearly excellent for the both for the human eyes and for the photograph picture. A conformity is very good of the both: of the back-data projected virtual picture on imaging screen, i.e. “bag postured on a chair” and background „military fish net“; and of the neighbourhood of real casern hall with frontal „yellow pedestal“ & background „military fish net“, on one piece of imaging screen. The “thin tube” creating solid frame of imaging screen is nearly invisible

Phased array optics could theoretically create a digital hologram like illusion
