Jaguar reveals its new virtual windscreen concept which allows you to pretend you are actually in Gran Turismo. Every detail from speed, track layout, and other pertinent information could be displayed in real time without you needing to take your eyes off the road. The Virtual Windscreen can display a virtual racing line that changes colour to indicate when to brake, virtual cones for driver training and even a “ghost car” virtualisation of your previous lap or an uploaded lap from another driver for you to compete against.
“Showing virtual images that allow the driver to accurately judge speed and distance will enable better decision-making and offer real benefits for everyday driving on the road or the track,” explains Dr Wolfgang Epple, research and technology director at Jaguar.
It’s like turning your entire driving experience into a video game.
