Land Rover is previewing a range of hi-tech features it says could appear in future products in the Discovery Vision concept.
The technologies include remote control off-road driving, predictive infrared laser scanning, gesture and voice control activation, smart glass that transforms the connectivity of the interior experience, and semi-autonomous driving, both on- and off-road.
"The car of the future will become more capable, cleaner, more connected, more desirable and more intelligent," says Dr Wolfgang Epple, director of research and technology at Jaguar Land Rover. "These are the five themes that are leading the research we are undertaking at Jaguar Land Rover today.
"We are showcasing some very exciting new technologies on the Discovery Vision Concept car. While some have real potential and others are just concepts, both Jaguar and Land Rover will continue to set new standards and continue to grow by bringing these new technologies and innovations to our customers."
The Discovery Vision was unveiled at the New York motor show where Land Rover also confirmed there would be a family of vehicles under the Discovery name in 2015, the first being Discovery Sport, expected to replace the Freelander.
