Jaguar Land Rover is leading the AutopleX project to investigate pioneering safety technology for self-driving technology. The project combines connected, automated and live mapping tech to allow self-driving cars to ‘see’ and ‘talk’ to each other.
We're bringing scientific expertise to this project in the area of connected autonomous driving systems, V2X systems, physical and virtual validation, and cyber security. Using our vehicle simulation facilities, we're working with the project partners to create insight prior to physical tests, as well as post trial impact assessment in various scenarios that cannot be carried out in physical test due to the environmental restrictions. We're also advising the project team on cyber security aspects and will continuously assess resilience of the AutopleX systems against potential cyber-attacks.
