Today’s cars are long enough and you make more sense with smartphones, but getting cars on your mobile phone is definitely not. The carmaker Jaguar Land Rover is testing such a system in all its trucks, and we were able to test one prototype for a short time.
In the British village of Gaydon, where the RAF air base used to take off, from where strategic bombers took off, the Jaguar Land Rover Group’s car development and test area spread out today. Not only are future car models being tested at us, but new ideas are being created in the offices of the development center.
You had the Jaguar Land Rover newspaper tested in about mid-June. The company, which has demonstrated several concepts for the smart cars of the future (more here and here), for example, presented the ways in which the control of on-board systems will be taken. There will be no need to touch the large touch screen, ultrasound waves will take care of the feedback at the fingertips. The Jaguar Land Rover is thus preparing a smart system that learns the habits of driving and, for example, reminds it that you left your mobile phone at home. If the car could remind you that the driver had left it inside, it would happen quite often.
The most interesting news, however, was the prototype of the ternn Range Rover Sport, which can really be done with a smartphone. We outlined this vision in 2007 in our April part, and in practice, others tried it for the first time about two years later. But so far, nothing like this has gotten into the production. Land Rover is just a step away from the introduction of this novelty into practice and according to what we could try, the system works without any problems.
The Land Rover technician first seated us in the cab, and then with them and with the idia seat, he overcame the pistol structure, simulating a complex tern. This makes it easy to get around the car, look at the situation and then maneuver the car with a nice, clear section, explained Allan Howing, who introduced the system. At a time when the ternn val was about to swing and all the weight of the car was sleeping on the left front and right rear wheels, Howing took an elegant hand. In sloitch situations, I can also read the technique.
For the system to work, it must have an automatic transmission and the user with the phone must be able to move the vehicle. The application is very simple, as we saw for ourselves, when it was allowed to move the car on a stony cut. The display has two bars on the left and right edges, a large steering wheel in the middle and a gear selection icon next to it.
Use the icon to enter the patina gear (D for forward travel, R for reverse travel). In order for the car to listen to the idea, it is always necessary to have one finger on the display. As soon as the display does not touch anything, the car stops. This guarantees that the driver will always be in control and that, for example, he will not start unpredictably after the driver stumbles in the dark and drops his smartphone, explains Howing.
so let’s D, lion an inch in the upper left corner (looking at ku). This cast controls the brake pedal, slowly moving your finger down releases the brake pressure as you would take your foot off the brake pedal. When we pull the cast to zero, the car slowly starts to move. With the other finger, we can easily add gas and speed up slightly, which is not recommended by Howing on a small flat surface. When driving in a complex, this function is used to give the driver sufficient service to make the ascent.
It is just as easy to use the steering wheel. The car listens really to the word, the system works perfectly. The demonstration was really short, with the car we only covered a meter, but it seems quite intuitive. But for really maneuvering in these cities, the furnace will only need to require a little practice. That’s why I’m not sure when this news will get into the Sri Lankan car. The technique is ready for that, the question is whether there is an idea.
