Have you ever just wished your car would drive itself? It could happen sooner than you think! Jaguar Land Rover and Ford are currently embarking on the first trials of this kind, and the United Kingdom wants to have self-driving vehicles by the end of 2020.
Vehicles that speak to each other and connect with different types of technology will be able to adjust their speeds to miss fewer traffic lights, and will know if another vehicle suddenly hits its breaks.
They will be able to let other cars know their breaking status, steering-wheel position, speed, which lane they are in, and other data. In short, vehicles will be so in tune with every vehicle around them that you will not have to worry about accidents.
A lot of vehicles already have different kinds of technology that can detect their surroundings, but it is limited. It often cannot see past a few car lengths away. Jaguar Land Rover and Ford are currently testing cars that “talk” to one another. The hope is that by communicating with each other, cars will be able to eliminate accidents and cut down drive times by automatically putting you on the most efficient route. The technology being tested by Jaguar Land Rover and Ford is still imperfect and will need more time and energy focused on it to create vehicles that can safely transport their inhabitants.
Over the next four years, Jaguar Land Rover plans to manufacture more than 100 vehicles to be used as research to, hopefully, further the technology needed for self-driving vehicles.
However, this trial is just the start of a new era of vehicle we hope to see on the roads very soon. Self-driving cars may seem to be a little futuristic, but if something can be created to lower or eliminate the amount of vehicle accidents every year, it is probably worth our attention.
When starting to draft the first design for the Land Rover, the consumer was always at the forefront. Due to the large amount of people working in agriculture in the 1940’s, Land Rover sought to create a vehicle that could be used for transportation or in the field like a tractor. Thus, the Land Rover Series 1 was created.
Land Rover’s original Series 1 is truly a classic. First launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show on April 30, 1948, the Series 1 has an 80-inch wheelbase, a pick-up body, and was originally priced at around 450 pounds.
Over the years many Series 1s have challenged expectations and assisted in discovering new lands. Land Rover Reborn is selecting 25 authentic Series 1s that have fallen into disrepair to make the trip to our home of the original Defender factory in Solihull, England.
Once at our factory, our team of experts will professionally restore the Series 1s to their original 1948 state. We believe that not one of our vehicles is the same. Especially with the Series 1s. Each Series 1 has its own unique history. Each had its own life it its own part of the world. It is our goal to restore each vehicle’s authenticity and uniqueness.
Each vehicle undergoes an examination so we know exactly what needs to be restored to what specification.
If you are willing to spend the money, you can purchase a Series 1 and even select which original paint color you would like for it to be (Light Green, Bronze Green, Royal Air Force Blue, Dove Gray, or Poppy Red) and what material you would like the seats recovered with. When restoring the Series 1s, it is our goal to retain each vehicles character and authenticity.
Tours are also available, so if you are a car enthusiast but do not have the money to bring a Series 1 home, you can see the restoration in person at our Solihull facility.
