EU Calls For Standardised Autonomous Vehicle Tech. JLR Agrees
Today, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) supported the EU’s plan for the standardisation and harmonisation of autonomous vehicle technology. It demonstrated a range of highly-autonomous vehicles, including ‘hands free’ driving, to EU Transport Ministers on the streets of Amsterdam.
The 28 EU Member States met at the EU Council of Ministers meeting to discuss the importance of legal and technical standardisation and harmonisation relating to the legality of testing, selling and liability associated with autonomous vehicles.
Dr Wolfgang Epple, Director of Research and Technology, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “We are all working on exciting autonomous driving technologies. To successfully deliver these technologies industry needs a common approach between carmakers, mobile telecom providers and providers of roadside infrastructure systems.
“This will allow standardisation and harmonisation, enabling cars to communicate with each other and the roadside infrastructure around them efficiently and effectively. It allows Jaguar Land Rover to deliver technologies that are relevant, accessible and affordable to customers.”
