Jaguar predicts autonomous driving in five years

July 12, 2016

Autonomous cars at Jaguar Land Rover could be developed within five years and inspire a range of additional driver benefits. Jaguar Land Rover director of research and technology Wolfgang Epple, speaking to Car Magazine, said cars would be able to manage ‘chaotic traffic situations’ by 2025. 

Once autonomy is a reality, attention will turn to monitoring the driver to watch for stress or drowsiness and adapt settings such as lighting or climate control in response. This will also ensure that if the car needs to hand control back to the driver, it is safe to do so. 

When the driver is in control, developments may include accelerator pedals that pulse to warn of danger or increase resistance if a driver is taking the car beyond the speed limit.
