Jaguar Land Rover to Test over 100 Autonomous Cars by 2020

Jaguar Land Rover are collaborating to put forward testing for autonomous cars for the future.

Jaguar Land Rover says that they are going to make a fleet of over 100 vehicles that will be used solely for research in the coming years. These vehicles will be worked on for autonomous driving and to test the latest technology associated with this practice of driving. People will be able to see the very first models of this experimentation in the few months from now being driven on the streets of Britain. 

Jaguar Land Rover, which is famous for making 4 wheel drive Range Rovers will drive these cars on the urban areas and motorways of Central England by the next few months. The initial models will take on the test route of 11 miles which is 66 kilometers reserved for this research. 

According to the recent stats, the market for autonomous cars is worth 900 billion pounds which is around 1.29 trillion dollars. This is a huge number, thus investing in this domain will surely lead on to much profit if the research is successful. This experimentation will allow the public to drive the driver-less cars by the year 2020. 

Jaguar Land Rover head of research, Tony Harper said that they are using new technology for autonomous driving. He said that they are working on new sensors that will give a 3 dimensional view of the track that will be under use of the car.

This technology will add more intelligence to autonomous driving and will also prevent the cars from accidents. Nissan of Japan is claiming to build the first commercial autonomous car for mass production. They will be building this car at north of England at Britain’s biggest single car plant which is in Sunderland.
