Jaguar Land Rover has introduced their new Virtual Windscreen system that promises to improve driving on the road and track.

The system turns the entire windscreen into a huge display by projecting images onto it to highlight hazards, the speed limit and navigation information. Jaguar goes on to say the system could have track-oriented display to show a variety of things including:

  • A ghost car of your car or another car from a previous lap
  • Virtual cones for driver training
  • Virtual racing lines to show you where to drive and when to brake

The company is also developing of a host of other systems including a 3D instrument cluster, virtual rearview mirrors and a gesture control system which could enable users to control everything from the sunblinds to the rear wiper without touching anything.

According to Jaguar Land Rover Director of Research and Technology Dr Wolfgang Epple, "We are working on research projects that will give the driver better information to enhance the driving experience."
