Jaguar Land Rover has revealed that its self driving cars which it is testing out at the moment now come with virtual eyes.
The Jaguar Land Rover Intelligent Pods self driving cars are being tested out in Coventry, these eyes have been fitted to them to try and work out how people will trust these self driving vehicles.
The friendly-faced ‘eye pods’ have a vital job: helping work out how much information future self-driving cars should share with users or pedestrians to ensure that people trust the technology.
As part of the engineering project, Jaguar Land Rover has enlisted the help of a team of cognitive psychologists to better understand how vehicle behaviour affects human confidence in new technology. The trust trials form part of Jaguar Land Rover’s government-supported UK Autodrive project.
