Jaguar Land Rover is committed to developing their vehicles with the latest technology and continuing to strive for excellence in the future. Recently, Jaguar Land Rover and Ford have been testing vehicles that can “talk” to one another.
Jaguar Land Rover hopes that by creating cars that communicate with each other, accidents will be eliminated and drive time will be cut down.
Vehicles that can “talk” to one another will be able to tell other cars their braking status, steering-wheel position, speed, which land they are in, and other data. Vehicles will be so in tune that you will not need to worry about accidents.
Over the next few years, Jaguar Land Rover plans to manufacture more than 100 vehicles to be used as research to further the technology needed for communicating cars.
One of the ways Jaguar Land Rover is moving forward with this project is by partnering with CloudCar. CloudCar is a developer of connected driver experiences, based in Palo Alto, California. The cloud services platform allows car manufacturers to use its capability by using machine-learning capabilities tied to various sensors in the car.
“This represents an important step in developing connected car technology,” Hanno Kirner, Executive Director of Corporate Strategy, Jaguar Land Rover, said. “CloudCar has been working with premium manufacturers on some of the most exciting opportunities and challenges in the fields of machine learning and infotainment. This investment is integral to Jaguar Land Rover’s vehicle technology program: but the program also presents an invaluable opportunity for other automotive manufacturers to get involved. The eventual need to integrate into the car hundreds of driver-focused global cloud services and content means this platform is an excellent example were cooperation between OEMs can improve outcomes for customers, as well as reducing costs.”
Jaguar Land Rover is planning to include the next-generation CloudCar platform in the Jaguar I-PACE, its first fully electric model.
