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."
