The high-performance Range Rover Sport was modified to include additional navigation sensors, radars and laser-based LIDAR, allowing it to autonomously handle roundabouts, traffic lights, pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles on complicated roads. It can also park itself.
“The Coventry Ring Road is known for its complicated slip roads and exits. It makes for very challenging conditions, especially when under pressure in the rush hour”, said Mark Cund, Jaguar Land Rover Autonomous Vehicle Research Manager. “Our self-driving car is not impacted by the same pressure, frustrations or fatigue that a driver may experience and so it’s capable of turning a potentially very stressful situation into a completely stress-free one.”
