Jaguar Land Rover tested cars in the network corridorJune 28, 2018
The British automaker began testing vehicles on the roads, where vehicles can communicate between themselves and the infrastructure
The Jaguar Land Rover Alliance (JLR) announced the launch of tests of cars with intelligent systems in the so-called network corridor – roads where vehicles can communicate with each other and elements of the surrounding infrastructure. This is reported by the press service of the British brand.
Tests on public roads have become part of the unmanned vehicle development program and the creation of an appropriate infrastructure for it. The project has already invested 7.1 million pounds sterling. Currently, more than 40 miles (65 km) of tracks in the UK are equipped with a set of wireless technologies that allow cars to interact with each other.
Communication is carried out using V2X (Vehicle-to-everything) technology, due to which the car is able to communicate with other traffic participants, road infrastructure and other objects. For example, the driver will receive information about the actions of other motorists, traffic signs and traffic lights, repair work, traffic jams, traffic capacity and pedestrians.
The received information will be analyzed in real time, which will allow the artificial intelligence of an unmanned SUV to make the right decisions.
Earlier, JLR announced the development of cars with automatic control, which will be able to ride in difficult terrain and in severe weather conditions. Engineers create a special 5D technology that combines acoustic signals, radar devices, a video system, as well as light and distance recognition sensors that will work together with the computer training system.
