Experience information before your eyes as you drive with Land Rover’s innovative laser Head-Up Display (HUD). The system projects key driver information onto the inside of the windscreen, allowing drivers to view relevant information quickly.
With data in the driver’s peripheral vision, there is no need to glance away from the road - this technological option aids driving without distraction. Additionally, laser technology provides superior colour clarity and contrast for easy viewing.
HUD can project vehicle speed, gear position and shift indicator, cruise-control information, satellite-navigation instructions and Traffic-Sign Recognition, such as the local speed limit.
For maximum convenience, the system is fully configurable and customisable, with the driver being able to pre-select which information is displayed, adjust brightness and alter vertical position of the display from the cluster menu.
‘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 motor industry’, says Director of Land Rover Programmes, Murray Dietsch. ‘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.’
HUD offers a taste of the brand’s Virtual Urban Windscreen vision, a futuristic system still under development that gives drivers a wider range of information using ‘transparent’ pillars to improve driving.
HUD is already available to order in the UK as an optional extra on Land Rover creations Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport, adding to the Land Rover family’s luxurious, technologically advanced direction.
