Self-Driving Jaguars and Land Rovers out on Coventry's roads

Connected and self-driving cars are being sent to Coventry

Jaguar Land Rover completes first public road tests of self-driving vehicle technology

JLR will now use the data from the tests to gain deeper insights into how driverless vehicles can be modeled on human behavior on the road, specifically in terms of interacting with traffic infrastructure and other vehicles.

Additional tests on its self-driving vehicle technology will continue through next year in the city of Coventry, historically the hub of Britain's auto industry and home of JLR's headquarters.

Further trials are scheduled to take place in Coventry and Milton Keynes early next year followed by a final series of open road demonstration events in both cities during the second half of 2018.

Democratic Senator Says Bill Clinton Should Have Resigned
She also introduced the " Me Too Congress Act " on Thursday to address yearslong and rampant sexual misconduct on Capitol Hill. Ken Starr was the independent counsel who probed Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky scandal and Whitewater investigation.

Nick Rogers, JLR's executive director for product engineering, said: "Testing this self-driving project on public roads is so exciting, as the complexity of the environment allows us to find robust ways to increase road safety in the future".

These first road tests for autonomous and connected vehicles - cars that drive themselves and communicate with each other and road infrastructure - means we're a step closer to "intelligent vehicles" being sold to the public.

Testing is now taking place on the roads of Coventry, near the Jaguar Land Rover headquarters.

Disney's New Pixar Movie 'Coco' Already Set a Box Office Record
Coco VR takes you behind the scenes, with unreleased footage, actual concept art, and storyboards from the film. VR studio Magnopus brought the movie art to life in VR and added social and interactive layers.

So as Jaguar Land Rover work to get self-driving technology in to production - as part of the £20m UK Autodrive project - they're now out on the streets of Coventry playing with what they've got. Many vehicle manufacturers use the site to test prototype cars and develop new technologies on roads that simulate the full range of driving conditions and inside laboratories that can change conditions from Arctic to Saharan at the flick of a switch.

JaguarLand Rover has started testing part and fully autonomous cars on the streets of the United Kingdom, and has confirmed the trails will continue well into 2018.

The hope is that Autodrive will help make the United Kingdom a global centre for the research and development into automated and connected vehicles, and into making them a part of daily life.
