Safety

Jaguar Land Rover recently revealed its ‘360 Virtual Urban Windscreen’ research which uses transparent roof pillars to give the driver a 360-degree view outside the car. A ghost car could be projected in front of the car for the driver to follow.

The concept uses future Heads-Up Display technology to provide information to keep the driver’s eyes on the road and reduce distraction. The ‘360 Virtual Urban Windscreen’ and ‘Follow-Me Ghost Car Navigation’ are part of a suite of new concept technologies that Jaguar Land Rover is developing to reduce the potential for accidents. A screen would be embedded in the surface of each pillar and would take a live video feed from cameras covering the angles outside the car usually obscured in the blind spots created by the A, B and C-pillars. Road users will be visible all around the car and by combining the transparent pillars with an advanced high quality Heads-Up display, the movement of other road users could be highlighted to the driver with an on-screen halo moving across the car’s virtual windscreen.
