Jaguar Land Rover to Road Test Future Technology on the UK’s First Connected Corridor

  • A new 41 mile ‘living laboratory’ of UK roads will be used to test and develop next-generation connected and autonomous vehicle technologies
  • A fleet of 100 ‘smart’ connected and autonomous technology research vehicles, including Jaguar and Land Rover models, will test new systems that enable cars to talk with each other
  • Car-to-car communication and ‘Over the Horizon’ warnings will make driving safer, improve journey times and prevent traffic jams
  • Car-to-car communication will allow cars to warn others vehicles. Ambulances, Fire and Police vehicles can alert drivers that they are approaching

 

Jaguar and Land Rover is investing in a 41 mile ‘living laboratory’ project on UK roads to develop new Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) technologies. The new CAV test corridor, which includes 41 miles of roads around Coventry and Solihull, will be used to evaluate new systems in real-world driving conditions.
