Jaguar Land Rover Alerting Drivers to Hazards

Aug. 21, 2019
Jaguar Land Rover is working with the University of Cambridge to develop technology that can project roadway safety alerts to drivers.

Aug. 21, 2019—Engineers at Jaguar Land Rover and researchers from the University of Cambridge are working together to create 3-D "head up" technology, reported CNBC.

The research aims to create an immersive display that would match real world experiences, which in turn would enable drivers to react to hazards while driving. If implemented, the display could provide drivers with information on lane departures, satellite navigation directions and road hazards. 

Volvo also announced in March that it would be installing similar technology, including in-car cameras and sensors to check drivers for signs of intoxication and distraction. The technology would monitor drivers and, when necessary, intervene.
