Land Rover unveiled a very useful technology that will allow cars to identify potholes, while driving and report the details to alert other drivers.
The Land Rover‘s technology will report the precise location and severity of the pothole, including and then will alert fellow drivers and local authorities to repair them.
Dr Mike Bell, Global Connected Car Director, Jaguar Land Rover, said:
“Our MagneRide equipped Range Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport vehicles feature sophisticated sensors that allow the vehicle to profile the road surface under the wheels and identify potholes, raised manholes and broken drain covers. By monitoring the motion of the vehicle and changes in the height of the suspension, the car is able to continuously adjust the vehicle’s suspension characteristics, giving passengers a more comfortable ride over uneven and damaged road surfaces.”
