Rover-Coupe-Dented-001 - by Lee from FlickrGerman automotive part supplier Hella has developed an electronic sensor that will detect dents and scratches on car body panels. Onboard cameras and GPS can be linked to the sensor to record evidence, so you will have information available whenever someone damages your car even when you are away from the car. The intelligent panels, however, are not expected to be in use by car manufacturers until 2018.
