Jaguar’s I-PACE, 2019 World Car of the Year and World Green Car of the Year, was chosen due to its strong sustainability credentials.
Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to an autonomous, connected, electric and shared (ACES) future is a cornerstone to delivering on its Destination Zero mission; the ambition to make societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner. The all-electric, zero-emissions Jaguar I-PACE prototype Jaguar I-PACE was modified to include enhanced vehicle detection and avoidance capabilities through a combination of radar and cameras, and a traffic light detection system.
The vehicle’s speed and steering, from stationary up to highway speed, was also controlled autonomously during test drives, with the system following routes from a detailed HD map showing route location and a detailed bird’s-eye view of junctions.
Jaguar Land Rover continues its drive for conscious innovation focusing on achieving its vision with Destination Zero – a future of zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion – across its facilities. Autonomous vehicle technology plays a major role in realising this and to date, has successfully completed real-world testing of the technology on complicated inner-city roads in the UK. It continues to collaborate with academia and industry to accelerate innovation.
Successfully tested on the streets of Dubai in preparation for its appearance at the Congress, the prototype model demonstrates the progress being made in the autonomous driving space globally, and Jaguar Land Rover’s contribution to the Emirate’s Self-Driving Transport Strategy.
The self-driving prototype Jaguar I-PACE was showcased at Dubai World Congress for Self-Driving Transport, which aims to accelerate progress towards the adoption of self-driving technology.
