Jaguar Land Rover Plans Test Fleet for Connected in addition to Autonomous Tech
follow from the footsteps of additional automakers who build fleets big test for technology-related in addition to independent, said executives of Jaguar Land Rover which which intends to begin testing a fleet of more than 100 connected, self-driving car on public roads from the United Kingdom over the next four years.
test from the real world of the vehicles will begin later which year on the 41 miles of highways in addition to urban roads outside Birmingham. The initial tests evaluate a series of techniques to assist the enhanced driver which combine in addition to enhance existing features or rely on fresh communication systems, vehicle-to-vehicle in addition to vehicle-infrastructure which allows for both cars in addition to motorists to respond to real-time information provided by additional cars, traffic lights in addition to road infrastructure.
James Toole, director of global product strategy, in addition to features characterized as “technology to suit the motivation, autonomous car.”
One advantage for the carmaker develops in cooperation with the Bush-supplier can be to promote the conservation lane assist which helps drivers to identify in addition to navigate through the construction zones. With high vehicle speeds, workers recently, in addition to unusual terrain road, construction areas in addition to one of the most high-risk environments for nascent technologies semi-autonomous considered.
so-called road works assist uses a camera in addition to image processing software stereoscopic facing forward to determine the cones in addition to barriers. The system will inform the driver which the construction area can be the future in addition to the application of smaller amounts of direct aid to help motorists stay focused in their lane. “The prototype system, we have a car steering to the center of the narrow corridor, in addition to reduce driver stress in addition to burden,” said Head of Research Tony Harper. “With further research, the future of the system has been able to push the auto by the self through the roadworks.”
additional features from the portfolio of test warning in emergency situations which provide motorists with alerts include car which ambulances, police cars or fire engines approaching before drivers can see reality which; another system automatically apply the brakes in cases speed low if drivers began to accelerate when the detection of vehicles or the walls of the additional garage, gets V2V warnings by additional cars system, in addition to warns drivers of hazards on the horizon or around bends from the road.

there can be no current timetable on when any of these enhanced features up to the market, not because when you turn to test features which rely heavily on self-government focus tests. A company spokesman says the fleet include “a mixture” of Jaguar in addition to Land Rover types.
additional automakers have planned projects with similar size test fleets. Volvo rolling out tests semi-autonomous in 2017, which used up to 100 vehicles on public roads in Gothenburg, Sweden, London, England; in addition to China. Google recently Chrysler in addition to Fiat formed a partnership to create nearly 100 smaller self-driving.
