Moreover, Jaguar Land Rover claims that the technology is so advanced tha,t in the future, passengers could watch 3D movies on a vehicle’s dashboard without the need for a physical screen or the use of shutter glasses as needed in cinemas.

The research is being undertaken in partnership with the Center for Advanced Photonics and Electronics (CAPE) at University of Cambridge and forms part of the automaker’s development of its ‘Smart Cabin’ that will use various technologies to create a personalized space inside the vehicle for the driver and passengers.

“This program is at the forefront of development in the virtual reality space – we’re looking at concepts and components which will set the scene for the connected, shared and autonomous cars of the future,” director of CAPE professor Daping Chu said. “CAPE Partners are world-leading players strategically positioned in the value chain network. Their engagement provides a unique opportunity to make a greater impact on society and further enhance the business value of our enterprises.”
