One thing I like about your approach is the space behind the shield for:
  • plug-in socket - an all weather socket with cover
  • sensors - a set of distance measurement devices. I don't know if ultrasonic sensors can 'reach out' to vehicles at highway speeds. IR lasers would be another approach. Think 'homegrown' adaptive cruise control and accident mitigation.
