Land Rover Research Working Toward an All-Terrain Self-Driving Land Rover
At this year’s Annual Tech Showcase in Whitley, UK, Land Rover’s engineers unveiled All-Terrain Self-Driving research that will be used to develop the first ever self-driving Land Rover capable of all-terrain driving. We all know that Land Rover has been setting the standard in SUV excellence for decades, but this work is truly state-of-the-art, cutting edge research. Jaguar Land Rover’s researchers are developing next-generation technologies that will essentially provide artificial intelligence that will literally allow the car to think for itself in order to adjust settings to adapt to any terrain or driving surface. Technologies such as surface identification and 3D path sensing use camera, ultrasonic, radar and LIDAR sensors enable the vehicle to determine surface characteristics and plan its route. Tony Harper, Head of Research, Jaguar Land Rover says, “Our all-terrain autonomy research isn’t just about the car driving itself on a motorway or in extreme off-road situations. It’s about helping both the driven and autonomous car make their way safely through any terrain or driving situation.”
