Discovery Tech Features

The 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport, available here at Land Rover Austin, offers seating for up to seven, along with all the capability you expect from a Land Rover.  This sporty and luxurious SUV also features a host of technology that keeps you and your fellow passengers safe, connected and in control.

All-Terrain Progress control makes sure the Discovery is optimized for any road conditions, from highway pavements to snow covered hills.  Similar to a low-speed cruise control, it maintains the driver-selected speed in both forward and reverse gears. There is no need for the driver to work the pedals, so driver focus can remain entirely on the road.

The on-board computer infused to the Driver Assist Plus Package uses stereo cameras to determine if the vehicle is at risk of a collision.  If it senses that a collision is imminent, the system will first send out a warning signal and then apply emergency braking.

Advanced Park Assist with Perpendicular Park helps you enter and exit parking spaces with ease.  It uses sensors to detect nearby obstacles and will steer the car in and out of a space.  All the driver needs to do is control the accelerator, transmission and brakes while the car does the work of steering the wheel in the right direction.

Standard on all models is “Eco Mode,” which optimizes vehicle settings, including the automatic transmission, heating, and air conditioning, to minimize fuel consumption and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.  Drivers can see the system at work through the touchscreen display, which communicates overall driving efficiency.

Land Rover InControl APPS connects your smartphone to your vehicle via the eight-inch color touchscreen. Bluetooth provides hands-free telephone and streaming audio connectivity, and USB ports located in both the first and second rows ensure multiple devices are charged and ready.

The combination of these cutting-edge technologies makes the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport a highly sophisticated and sought after vehicle.   We invite you to stop by Land Rover Austin today to take this amazing SUV for a test climb today!

Holographic HUD is Here!

Jaguar Land Rover has brought in-car technology to the next level, with holographic head-up display for their new lineup of award-winning vehicles!HUDD

Cambridge researchers have developed a new type of head-up display for vehicles which is the first to use laser holographic techniques to project information such as speed, direction and navigation onto the windscreen so the driver doesn’t have to take their eyes off the road.  According to the researchers behind the technology, it is another step towards cars which provide a fully immersive experience and will eventually even improve safety by monitoring driver behavior.

Cars can now park for us, help us from skidding out of control, or even prevent us from colliding with other cars. The holographic HUD technology will provide better color, brightness and contrast than other systems, but in a smaller, lighter package.

Most of the HUDs in passenger cars display information that be seen on the dashboard, including speedometer and tachometer and navigation information. Some models also display night vision information.HUD

Lee Skrypchuk, Human Machine Interface Technical Specialist at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The development of a laser holographic HUD presented a number of technical challenges but also a number of benefits including small package size, high optical efficiency, wide color gamut and cross platform compatibility.  Incorporating a laser holographic light engine was a true world first application of technology for Jaguar Land Rover and I’m delighted that the technology has worked so well in our vehicles.”
