Jaguar Land Rover Builds Fake City To Test Driverless Cars in Ireland

But unleashing self-driving Discovery and Range Rover SUVs with unproven technology onto the public road obviously isn’t a good idea and could cause a fatal accident. Instead, Land Rover is collaborating with global software, mobility, and telecoms companies to create a “smart city hub” to test self-driving cars in real-world scenarios on streets with cars, pedestrians, and cyclists. As part of a collaboration with technology companies such as Cisco, Seagate, Renovo, and Red Hat, Jaguar Land Rover will develop a private testing facility called the ‘The Future Mobility Campus Ireland’.
