Cutting-edge technology is being pioneered by researchers at Jaguar Land Rover to develop a truly intelligent self-learning vehicle that will offer a completely personalised driving experience and help prevent accidents by reducing driver distraction.
Using the latest machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques, Jaguar Land Rover's self-learning car will offer a comprehensive array of services to the driver, courtesy of a new learning algorithm that recognises who is in the car and learns their preferences and driving style. The software then applies this learning by using a range of variables including your calendar, the time of day, traffic conditions and the weather to predict driver behaviour and take over many of the daily driving 'chores', allowing the driver to concentrate on the road ahead.
The personalised experience would also not be limited to the car owned by the driver. If you hire an intelligent Jaguar or Land Rover in the future, the car will recognise the driver and passengers and offer them the same preferences learned by their vehicle at home.
The intelligent car will have its own on-board 'Smart Assistant' to carry-out a host of functions to allow the driver to concentrate on driving.
The ground-breaking system will minimise driver distraction to reduce the potential for accidents – with an eventual goal of zero accidents.
New state-of-the-art software recognises the driver and learns their preferences. It can then predict their routine and changing preferences based on variables such as the weather and their schedule for the day.
The 'Smart Assistant' will check your calendar in advance and remind you to take your child's sports kit to sports day.
The self-learning car will learn an individual's driving style and apply them when Auto Adaptive Cruise Control (AACC) is engaged.
Some of the features included in the Self-Learning Car concept:
• Vehicle Personalisation – climate, seat, steering wheel, mirrors and infotainment settings.
• Destination Prediction – automatic destination entry to navigation system based on historical usage.
• Fuel Assist – suggests fuel stations which have the driver's preferred brand and location, based on historical usage. The car will let you know if you have enough fuel before long journeys the day before you travel.
• Predictive Phone Call – predicts who you are likely to call in a certain situation.
• Passenger Awareness – will activate passenger preferred infotainment settings and personal climate zones.
• Intelligent Notifications – based on traffic situation, the car can alert people that you will be late or provide relevant contextual updates such as flight delays on your drive to the airport.
• Auto Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) – when AACC is activated, the car applies the distance setting and acceleration profile it has learned when the driver is driving the vehicle.
