Self-driving Jaguar I-PACE tested on Dubai roads
Future of driving in full display at Dubai World Congress for Self-Driving Transport
Jaguar has showcased an autonomous prototype Jaguar I-PACE at the 2019 Dubai World Congress for Self-Driving Transport.
Tested on the streets of Dubai in preparation for its appearance at the Congress, the prototype model demonstrates the progress being made in the autonomous driving space globally.
Jaguar’s investment in autonomous, connected, electric and shared (ACES) driving is a cornerstone to delivering on its Destination Zero ambition to make societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner.
“Jaguar Land Rover shares similar goals to Dubai’s government with regards to mobility and sustainability. We both wish to make driving safer, to free up time we spend travelling, and to reduce the negative impact travel has on our planet,” commented Bruce Robertson, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover MENA.
“The Dubai World Congress for Self-Driving Transport tackles these same important challenges head-on, and our autonomous Jaguar I-PACE prototype is proof positive of the impressive progress our company and industry are making.”
Ahmed Hashem Bahrozyan, CEO of the Public Transport Agency and Head of the Smart & Sustainable Transport Committee at RTA, said: “The pilot launch of Jaguar autonomous vehicle in Dubai contributes to the realisation of our leaders drive to transform 25% of total mobility journeys in Dubai to self-driving transport by 2030. We need to dedicate more efforts to deliver on Dubai’s strategy through taking concrete measures, and stepping up cooperation with the private sector, in line with our wise leadership’s aspirations.”
Hosted at Dubai World Trade Centre across October 15 and 16 2019, the event provides a platform for experts, policymakers, researchers, and academics to share their expertise and discuss the latest innovations in technology for self-driving transport.
