Jaguar Reveals Its 'Transparent Pillar' And 'Ghost Car' Tech [VIDEO]
Dec 16, 2014 12:23
Jaguar is working on new technology that makes pillars disappear and a ghost car in front of you to follow navigation directions. Does that sound dangerous?
The two new devices are being developed to aid visibility with the help of cameras and digital imaging. The transparent pillars are called 360 Virtual Urban Windscreen and are embedded into the two pillars around the car which work with cameras around the vehicle to project an image. It would help with a driver's blindspot.
The "Follow-MeGhost Car Navigation" on the other hand is a system that creates a fake car to project onto its windscreen so it makes it easier to follow driving directions.
"The Jaguar Land Rover research team is developing this technology to improve visibility and to give the driver with the right information at the right time," said Dr. Wolfgang Epple, JLR's Director of Research and Technology. "If we can keep the driver’s eyes on the road ahead and present information in a non-distracting way, we can help drivers make better decisions in the most demanding and congested driving environments."
Drivers know that car accidents can be really expensive in terms of paying for repairs especially when other drivers involved in such do not have any insurance of their own. When other drivers have not had insurance it meant the all insured driver would end up losing out financially, either by having to pay higher levels of excess or via higher premium costs. However there are now legal ways, in which costs can be recovered from the uninsured drivers involved in traffic accidents. Recovering costs is something that careful and insured drivers should do after uninsured drivers have caused or contributed to accidents. The issue can be serious for drivers that are faced with repair costs when they did not cause the damage in the first place. Read more
