New JLR tech al­lows you to steer your Range Rover through a smart­phone app. Is au­ton­o­mous driv­ing in Land Rover’s fu­ture plans?

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - TECHNICAL -

Per­son­ally, I still pre­fer driv­ing a car. But the re­al­ity is that au­ton­o­mous driv­ing is there. But it’s go­ing to take mas­sive gov­ern­men­tal and in­fra­struc­ture changes to im­ple­ment it prop­erly. While peo­ple will al­ways have the de­sire to drive the ve­hi­cle them­selves, the ideal is to have both. Per­haps you’re stuck in high­way traf­fic for an hour and a half and you want to spend 30 min­utes go­ing into au­ton­o­mous mode to catch up on work or sleep? Wouldn’t that be great? But cul­tur­ally and psy­cho­log­i­cally, it’ll take a while for us to get to that point. Maybe that’s for the next gen­er­a­tion of ve­hi­cle own­ers.
