JLR Researching New Pothole Detection Technology

Written By:

Jaguar Land Rover has revealed it is working on a new pothole detection system which, if proven successful, might find its way across their Land Rover and Jaguar lines of vehicles.

The new technology uses a road-sensing camera system jointly developed by JLR and the Coventry City Council, and prepares the car for road undulation impact.

By sharing data acquired over The Cloud, it can even provide the location of the problem areas so authorities can take due action.

This system improves upon the current Magneride adaptive dampers option on the Evoque and the Discovery Sport that uses sensors to prepare the car's suspension for impacts on rough roads.

And India? We hope we get similar technology in the distant future here as well, but with regard to alerting authorities into action, let's just say its effectiveness will probably differ slightly in this potholed side of the world...
