Land Rover adds a Virtual windscreen

Jaguar Land Rover has revealed two new research projects it’s working on. A 360 Virtual Urban Windscreen to give a driver a 360-degree view outside the car and a ghost car navigation aid that projects a virtual vehicle ahead of you to follow.

The ghost car is a navigation aid for busy urban roads and uses heads-up display technology to provide information to keep the driver’s eyes on the road and reduce distraction, Range Rover said in a statement.

“Driving on city streets can be a stressful experience, but imagine being able to drive across town without having to look at road signs, or be distracted trying to locate a parking space as you drive by,” Wolfgang Epple, director of research and technology at Jaguar Land Rover, said.

The British carmaker is also working on virtual transparent roof pillars that would provide a driver with a 360-degree view of whatever is around the vehicle uninterrupted by the pillars that support the roof.
