Electric Jaguar I-Pace turned into a selfdriving carOctober 23, 2019
As part of the World Autonomous Transport Congress in Dubai, Jaguar Land Rover introduced a prototype selfdriving car based on the Jaguar I-Pace. An experimental electric car first drove onto public roads.
The Jaguar Land Rover drone is based on the Jaguar I-Pace serial electric crossover. For orientation in space, a modified system for finding the rest of the cars is used, which includes several cameras and a radar, and a detailed map of the best quality. In addition, the crossover is able to distinguish between traffic signals using an electronic assistant.
The I-Pace autonomous control system is perhaps the future stage of the software and hardware platform, with which Jaguar Land Rover conducted research in 2018. At that time, it was used on Range Rover Sport and successfully overcame one of the most difficult routes in the UK – the ring Coventry Ring Road. At the same time, the car without assistance moved with rearrangements, passed intersections and interchanges, without violating traffic rules and not exceeding a speed of 65 km / h.
Still, these studies are not the first in the JLR with unmanned vehicles. In 2018, the automaker created an unmanned capsule with virtual eyes – it was used to simulate eye contact between a pedestrian and a driver. A little earlier information appeared that in the depths of the company, studies are being conducted with autonomous control systems for off-road and severe weather conditions, which can meet the fourth and fifth levels of autonomy according to SAE classification.
