4x4 Magazine  |  No.362 Get Out There  


So there we have it then. You no longer need to be in your 4x4 to go off-roading. Thanks to
the boffins at Land Rover, it is going to be possible to remotely control your machine while
you stand out of harm’s way. That’s just one of the amazing new technical achievements
that was announced this month by JLR at the New York Auto Show, where the Discovery
Vision Concept was unveiled. Remote Control Drive ‘enables the driver to manoeuvre the car at low
speed while not actually seated inside it.’ Can you truly be described as the driver, if that’s the case?
Interesting legal point should your vehicle then run over the neighbour’s cat. Useful though should
you need to hitch up a trailer on your own.
At present this is a Discovery Concept, so whether we are going to see all this in a production
machine in the near future is still in question, but you get the idea that it won’t be long. Some of it
does appear somewhat unnerving, however. Apparently there’s the ‘next generation’ of HMI, which
– and I kid you not – is the Human-Machine Interface, which allows video calls between passengers.
Talking to each other is obviously so passé. Any grumpy old man mockery from me does cause
concern and head scratching when you learn that the Discovery’s Smart Glass has ‘the power of
augmented reality’. Emails have been sent to Stephen Hawkings and Brian Cox to check this one
out, but my understanding of the English language means that it’s not possible to augment reality.
Surely you cannot make something ‘more real’? Perhaps this is due to the company’s new
commercial link with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic spacecraft project; Land Rover Discovery
bravely goes where no off-roader has gone before…
The areas of the concept that really impress, however, relate to the development of the Terrain
Control.
