Land Rover creates 'ghost car' for drivers to follow

Lucas Mearian | Dec. 17, 2014
The ghost car is a navigation aid for busy urban roads and uses heads-up display technology to provide information to keep the driver's eyes on the road and reduce distraction, Range Rover said in a statement.

Land Rover said the full potential of the 360 Virtual Urban Windscreen would be realized once its moved to the cloud, offering an interface with roadside infrastructure and businesses in the urban landscape. The Virtual Urban Windscreen could present information ranging from gas station prices to the number of parking spaces available, so drivers won't have to look for that information themselves.

"The connected car could also enhance navigation by advising the driver to turn left or right at more visible landmarks, such as pubs or shops, rather than just road signs or street names," Land Rover said.
