The Follow-Me Ghost Navigation comes with an advanced heads-up display, which involves projection of an image of a virtual vehicle or a ghost, which the driver needs to follow turn by turn, thus manoeuvring through the navigation process. This system comes quite useful in urban conditions, where it is already crowded. This also is helpful for drivers who are visiting a city for the first time. Jaguar Land Rover had recently displayed the Ghost Car concept especially designed for the track.

This has been made effective by a string of cameras, which cover the angles to the exterior of the car. This effectively reduces the blind spot for the driver, where it is not able to view those cars, which come in that particular place while on the road. The virtual screen effectively displays the objects on the blind spot, thus essentially allowing the driver to get a 360 degree view of the rear angle.
