A self-driving prototype of the Jaguar I-Pace took to the streets of Dubai for the first time, demonstrating the company’s latest autonomous driving research technologies.
The drive falls in line with the brand's commitment to an autonomous, connected, electric and shared future, while creating a safer, healthier, and cleaner environment.
The future is greener
The SUV was modified to include enhanced vehicle detection and avoidance capabilities through a combination of radar and cameras, alongside a traffic light detection system.
It's speed and steering was also controlled during the autonomous test runs.
"Jaguar Land Rover shares similar goals to Dubai’s government with regards to mobility and sustainability. We both wish to make driving safer, to free up time we spend travelling, and to reduce the negative impact travel has on our planet," commented Bruce Robertson, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover MENA.
"The Dubai World Congress for Self-Driving Transport tackles these same important challenges head-on, and our autonomous Jaguar I-Pace prototype is proof positive of the impressive progress our company and industry are making," he added.
