Jaguar Land Rover Begins Testing Autonomous Vehicles in UK

The tests are aiming to enable driverless cars to replicate human behaviour and reactions when driving.

JLR and TMETC are focusing on testing autonomous vehicle technology, using specially adapted and GPS-connected vehicles that are autonomous-capable but have test operators behind the wheel for safety.

Urban trials began in Coventry last week, as the city joins 12 other locations conducting similar tests around the world.

The encounter between him and the aggressor was recorded by a fellow passenger, which Saia then posted on her Facebook page. Luckily some good Samaritans were on the scene, coming to her aid and forcing the man to get off the train.

"By using inputs from multiple sensors, and finding intelligent ways to process this data, we are gaining accurate technical insight to pioneer the automotive application of these technologies", Rogers said.

"The fundamental goal of UK Autodrive is to get connected and autonomous vehicle technology out onto UK roads, so the start of trialling on the streets of Coventry is clearly a major landmark both for the project and for the UK as a whole", said Tim Armitage, Arup's UK Autodrive project director.

While Jaguar Land Rover's plans and goals are quite understandable, it remains an open question which firms will actually be able to effectively capitalize on the expected rapid growth of the self-driving vehicle sector over the coming decade.

The Election Commission examined the evidence put forth by both the parties and concluded that the group led by Mr. Vasava was appointed the Acting President of their party by the rebel faction on September 17 this year.

The UK's largest autonomous and connected auto trial has taken research onto public roads in Coventry, testing technology in real-life scenarios for the first time. There are three such alliances in the United Kingdom that are working to develop automated and connected vehicles that can be used on public roads.

It has already proven its research technology can work on a closed track and the real-world testing is the next step in turning the research into reality. The UK government is now hosting a program encouraging such testing as part of a plan that's meant to see self-driving vehicles become relatively common by 2020.

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.
