Jaguar Land Rover Will Bring Laser Windshield Display System To Paris Motor Show
|   Friday, October 10, 2014
The British from Jaguar Land Rover will present at the Paris Motor Show a new windshield display technology, an HUD type that works with lasers.
The Range Rover Evoque SW1, the special edition of the British model scheduled for presentation at the Paris Motor Show, will receive a special windshield display system. This is a new HUD system that uses laser technology and represents a premiere in the automotive industry. The technology is offered optionally only on the Evoque range for now, but it will find its place on the list of features for other models in Jaguar Land Rover's portfolio.


The difference between the new HUD laser and conventional systems comes from the coverage the system is capable of. Future versions may cover any point on the windscreen to provide information relevant to the driver, as well as provide high quality for the images displayed, significantly higher than existing systems, according to Jaguar Land Rover at least.

The Head-up Display laser that Jaguar Land Rover mounted on the Evoque can display running speed, selected gear, navigation and traffic information, cruise control system status and notifications about the status of the car. In the future, the system will be able to display more information, depending on the needs discovered by the British. The models in the car maker's ranges that have off-road abilities could use laser HUD system for "transparent hood" technology previously disclosed in the concept version earlier this year.

The HUD type systems have been originally invented for combat aircraft and were designed to provide the pilot with all essential information for the flight, without having to take his eyes off the target. Meanwhile, the system displays penetrated in the automotive industry.

They started timidly showing only running speed, but have advanced pretty quickly, and came to be full-color units that illustrate navigation information and the selected radio station near the current running speed. Just like fighter pilots, these displays had come to the aid of the driver because he does not have to look down to get the essential information.

"Jaguar Land Rover's HUD system is an innovative driver information tool, which really pushes the boundaries of advanced laser projection technology. It borrows from military technology - which, until now, has been unheard of in the automotive industry. Land Rover is committed to preventing the risk of accidents by reducing driver distraction. By presenting key driver information in this way and removing the need for the driver to look away from the road ahead, HUD is an important step on the journey to delivering Land Rover's vision of the intelligent car of the future." said Murray Dietsch, Land Rover Programs Director.

There will be two SW1 editions, one colorful and one monochrome. The former SW1 Special Edition Evoque is based on the present Dynamic body style and will be offered in Firenze Red, Santorini Black, Fuji White, Loire Blue, and Corris Grey with a contrasting Fuji white roof and gloss Fuji white 20-inch alloy wheels.
