Jaguar Land Rover is experimenting with augmented reality




The British car maker Jaguar Land Rover is working on a system to provide drivers, which information can be designed to replace. Safety benefits shown an advanced windshield The company is also working on gestures operation.

Jaguar Virtual Windscreen like the windshield of the future called is, realistic virtual objects must be able to show to the windscreen. Thus, directors can be, among other highlights dangers but would also information such as speed or navigation instructions can be. Dished On the circuit the windshield driving performance would be improved by eg projecting their own or others ‘ghost car’ or indicate. Ideal line and braking points

The head of Jaguar Land Rover’s research department, Wolfgang Epple, wants the highest quality display images on the windshield. Then the information can be used by the driver. Better and faster processing In order to display on which the driver can estimate speed and distance from other cars mirror information deonderzoeksafdeling working on 3D images. Through eye-tracking two separate images would be shown for both eyes together produce a realistic 3D image.

Finally, an interface should increase further. Based gestures operation safety and ease of use Gestures that control should work on e-field sensing, where the proximity of hands or fingers is detected. The sensing field, the distance at which fingers are detected, is still a few millimeters, but that would be for about six inches. Increases In this way, inter alia, navigation systems, and wipers could be controlled. It would certainly take several years are available for the various techniques.
