LAND ROVER DEMONSTRATES AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE

CAPABILITY IN AMSTERDAM

In support of the EU’s plans for the standardisation and harmonisation of autonomous vehicle technology, Land Rover has demonstrated a range of research Autonomous vehicle technologies in Amsterdam.

Transport and Environment Ministers from 28 EU Member States, all of whom were representing the EU Council of Ministers, were among those to witness the range of autonomous vehicle technologies being demonstrated, including hands free driving.

Two Range Rover Sport vehicles were present, one demoing Remote Control technology, which allows a driver to control a vehicle externally, and another demonstrating Hands Free technology, which keeps the vehicle in lane and will perform a highway lane change and overtake when the driver indicates.

Jaguar Land Rover’s research into how a vehicle could connect to a road network authority to regulate its speed according to the conditions will be core to this demonstration.

Dr Wolfgang Epple, Director of Research and Technology, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “We are all working on exciting autonomous driving technologies. To successfully deliver these technologies, industry needs a common approach between carmakers, mobile telecom providers and providers of roadside infrastructure systems.

“This will allow standardisation and harmonisation, enabling cars to communicate with each other and the roadside infrastructure around them efficiently and effectively. It allows Jaguar Land Rover to deliver technologies that are relevant, accessible and affordable to customers”

Shown in a real world environment, over 15.5km, the demonstration of technology allowed EU ministers to understand the importance of standardisation between other vehicles and roadside infrastructure.
