FIRST ON-ROAD TESTS FOR SELF-DRIVING JAGUAR LAND ROVERS

Jaguar Land Rover is taking part in the UK’s first road tests for autonomous and connected vehicles. Real-world testing takes Jaguar Land Rover another step closer to bringing an intelligent vehicle to reality. 



As part of the £20m UK Autodrive project, Jaguar Land Rover is testing a range of research technologies that will allow cars to talk to each other as well as roadside infrastructure, such as traffic lights on the roads of Coventry. The trials will explore how future connected and autonomous vehicles can replicate human behavior and reactions when driving. 

Jaguar Land Rover is developing both fully and semi-autonomous vehicle technologies to offer customers a choice of an engaged or autonomous drive while maintaining an enjoyable and safe driving experience. The company’s vision is to make the self-driving car viable in the widest range of real-life, on- and off-road driving environments and weather. 

“Testing this self-driving project on public roads is so exciting, as the complexity of the environment allows us to find robust ways to increase road safety in the future. By using inputs from multiple sensors, and finding intelligent ways to process this data, we are gaining accurate technical insight to pioneer the automotive application of these technologies. Jaguar Land Rover is proud to be a leader in collaborative research projects for autonomous and connected cars. We are supporting innovative research that will be integral to the infrastructure, technology and legal landscape needed to make intelligent, self-driving vehicles a reality within the next decade.”

Do you require an Outdoor Air Purifying Equipment absolutely Free?

All of us have seen the worst few days of Smog & Pollution in Delhi. The levels of PM 10, as well as PM 2.5, were many times more than the prescribed norms. These PM 10, as well as PM 2.5, are very harmful to everyone, especially the Children & Elderly persons.

The Director of AIIMS has stated a few days ago, that almost 25000 - 30000 persons are killed every year, by the effects of Pollutants, in Delhi & NCR, though its an estimate as it is the silent killer. The Chicago University has mentioned in one of its studies, that the residents of Delhi & NCR are losing up to 6 - 9 years of their life due to pollution.

Keeping in mind the above facts, a company is now offering an Outdoor Air Purifying Equipment at very nominal cost. In case you don't want to pay anything, you can get it Absolutely Free, i.e. at No Cost to you, as in that case, it will carry an Advertisement of the Sponsoring company. The overall dimensions are height 4.5 Ft & Dia 3 Ft only.

In fact, once the cost is recovered, you will start even making a small earning out of it, without investing anything. The Electricity consumption is very little and you have to keep the Equipment at any crowded place, in any market location, at any religious place, hospital, community center etc, for the benefit of the visitors as well as to cover the Advertisement costs.

If interested, please Email 'RWABhagidari' with your complete contact details, mobile number, as well the Address of the desired location for the feasibility analysis and it will be forwarded to the manufacturers of the equipment for further action. RWAs/MTAs/NGOs may plan for such equipment for their localities/markets for making the GREEN ZONE for the benefit of residents/visitors.
