Imagine if you could have a full video-game-style heads-up display in your car. 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. Imagine if you could even have your Forza Motorsports -style optimal racing line, complete with braking zone indication presented to you on your windshield in a form of augmented reality. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
Well it appears that Jaguar is working on bringing this exact technology to life.
More than the already amazing feats we discussed, Jaguar wants to push it so far as to offer a "ghost car" display so that when on a track you can focus on racing yourself or maybe even a friend’s previous best time. It is the ultimate combination of video games and real life.
If that wasn’t futuristic enough, Jaguar is working on a tracking technology that will control the system through gestures and eye movements so you never need to mess with button and switches. If properly implemented this form of input could be quicker, more accurate and less distracting than traditional tactile switches.
You can learn even more about what Jaguar has planned for this new system and see a video of it in action after the break.
