Jaguar Land Rover Autonomous Urban Drive

Jaguar Land Rover has showcased a Range Rover Sport fitted with prototype technology that can enable the vehicle to operate Autonomously through a city, obeying traffic lights as well as negotiating T-junctions and roundabouts.

This research technology, called Autonomous Urban Drive, is designed and developed in the UK. It is a step closer to achieving ‘level four’ autonomy in Jaguar Land Rover’s future vehicles within the next decade.

Level four Autonomous vehicles are capable of carrying out the entire driving task for specific environments such as towns and cities without any Driver intervention. Using the Autonomous Urban Drive prototype technology, passengers can select a location and the Range Rover Sport research vehicle will decide the best route. It can navigate a complex Urban environment which is being trialled at the HORIBA MIRA Proving Ground.

Jaguar Land Rover is developing both fully- and semi-Autonomous vehicle technologies to offer customers a choice of an engaged or Autonomous Drive, while maintaining an enjoyable and safe driving experience. The company’s vision is to make the Autonomous car viable in the widest range of real-life, on- and off-road driving environments and weather.
