Jaguar Land Rover’s Innovative Pothole Alert Technology!

Jaguar Land Rover’s Innovative Pothole Alert Technology! 

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) unveiled its Pothole Alert technology, a new system that identifies holes in the road ahead, and then shares the data with other road users.

The new developing technology will allow the car to identify the presence of a hole and to react by adjusting the suspension to lessen the impact and to give passengers a more comfortable ride over uneven road surfaces. An image and a GPS location could then be sent to local councils to help repairs take place swiftly.

A number of experimental Range Rover Evoques is being used to test the new technology and JLR’s research team is working closely with Coventry City Council to explore the possibilities.

JLR claims the pioneering research could save drivers millions of pounds a year in avoided punctures and damage caused by the potholes, which are estimated to cause around £2.8 billion of damage to cars per year!
