Jaguar’s new virtual windscreen combines projection, sensing and data processing technology to take the heads up display to video game levels. Projecting across the entire windscreen all of the information you need for precision driving, and more.
The virtual windscreen has your next track day covered too with the ability to display your lap stats, times and position in the race. Everything that any decent driving game would have on display is there too; racing line, breaking guidance, ghost car competitor and virtual cones for parking lot tracks or as Jaguar describes it ‘driver training’.
