Like many other car manufacturers, Jaguar Land Rover is also busy developing a self-driving car. According to the British car manufacturer, self-driving cars are reality within ten years. The first test with a fully autonomous driving Range Rover has now been completed.
The test with a prototype of a self-propelled Range Rover Sport was carried out as part of the British government project UK Autodrive. For the test, the car drove up to 55 km / h on the complex city ring road of Coventry. In addition, the lane was successfully changed, anticipated traffic and without any problems driving roundabouts.
To allow the Range Rover to drive independently, the cruise control was equipped with additional sensors, radar and lidar . The car can recognize traffic lights, cross pedestrians and avoid cyclists and other cars. The Range Rover can also park independently. You can see what the test looked like in the video below.
The UK Autodrive project was a three-year program, which ends this month. The British government invested 22.5 million euros in it.
