Jaguar Land Rover recently demonstrated its latest connected and autonomous vehicle technology at the Horiba MIRA facility in the UK. The company is working with Ford and Tata Motors European Technical Centre to test connected technologies that will enable cars to communicate with the road infrastructure.

JLR is in the process of creating a fleet of more than 100 research vehicles to develop and test a wide range of technologies over the next four years.

Tony Harper, head of research at Jaguar Land Rover, said, “We know that there’s a huge potential for these technologies in future vehicles around the world. Until now we have focused on communication between Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles, this collaborative approach is a major stepping stone toward all connected and autonomous vehicles cooperating with each other in the future.”
