Autonomous Range Rover Sport drove along the most difficult track in CoventryOctober 10, 2018
The company Jaguar Land Rover has tested its unmanned Range Rover Sport on one of the most difficult routes in the UK. The prototype of an autonomous SUV overcame the full circle of the Coventry Ring Road ring road. According to the press service of the brand, the car was successfully rebuilt between the lanes and has never violated traffic rules and speed limits of 65 km / h.
The test took place as part of the UK Autodrive project, which will be completed at the end of this month after three years of research. The unmanned system installed on an SUV includes the latest lidars, cameras and ultrasonic sensors. Technology scans the surface in front of the car and analyzes this information for optimal driving.
An off-road vehicle can autonomously move along ring traffic interchanges, respond to traffic lights, and also recognize pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles on the roads. In addition, the car is able to independently make parking.
Jaguar Land Rover expects that this technology will help in the fight against traffic jams and significantly increase safety on the roads. Network technologies will enable the cars of the future to interact with each other, and with the road infrastructure.
Last year, Jaguar Land Rover began testing autonomous cars in urban environments. Tests were held in Coventry, and in 12 other cities around the world.
