New Intelligent Seat Fold Technology

The All-New Land Rover Discovery has been revealed, and it will include Intelligent Seat Fold technology. In just 14 seconds, this brand new technology will allow the owner to remotely adjust the seats from anywhere in the world with the use of a smartphone. This eliminates the need to manually configure them.

In conjunction with the British Royal Navy Parachute Display Team, Bear Grylls and six members of the British Royal Navy Parachute Team freefell from 13,000 feet at 125 mph to test it out. While freefalling, Grylls used his smartphone to configure the seven seats of a Land Rover Discovery.

“I think the heart of Land Rover is all about pioneering adventure,” Grylls says, “you know having that spirit of discovery and going for things.”

Land Rover’s Intelligent Seat Fold technology will allow the owner to completely recline or fold down all five seats in the rear of the Discovery. This new feature will allow owners to configure the seats in their vehicle while doing everyday things. Such as waiting in line at the grocery store, or enjoying a child’s sporting event.

“I think it’s all about doing stuff that is user friendly. The thing is the way to test user friendly is to do it in difficult environments. So that way we say, let’s try to configure a car in freefall. That, for us, is definitely sort of in the right space because you’ve got to be able to concentrate on the important stuff, which is pulling the parachute. This [Intelligent Seat Fold technology] needs to be easy to be intuitive and easy to do. If it’s complicated, then you’re in trouble.”

“The successful part is we did manage to configure this,” Grylls concludes. “The seats did flip down, we opened it up, done, ready to go, ditch the parachutes, in and out of there. So, mission complete.”

All-New Land Rover Discovery Revealed

In true dramatic fashion, the All-New Land Rover Discovery was revealed September 28, 2016 driving across a 42 foot LEGO replica of London’s Tower Bridge. The model was built over 150 days and made using over 5,805,846 individual LEGO bricks. Built by a team of master LEGO builders, it was even made with a working drawbridge.

The All-New Land Rover Discovery is the most versatile Land Rover model yet. It comes with Land Rover’s new Intelligent Seat Fold technology which allows owners to configure the seven seats in their Discovery from anywhere in the world with their smart phone and plenty of storage.

The exterior of the All-New Discovery is truly designed for the next generation. The All-New Discovery demonstrates well-crafted and sculpted surfaces to showcase a new level of refinement. The interior was designed using inspiration from the classic Discovery. It uses strong horizontal and vertical lines. The interior also boasts a panoramic roof. This one-of-a-kind roof makes the cabin of the vehicle feel larger and provides plenty of natural light.

Partnered with Meridian, a leader in high-performance audio technologies and digital sound processing, Land Rover has created 10 and 16 speaker advanced audio systems for the All-New Discovery. Both options feature Dynamic Volume Control technology to make sure all undesired noise is balanced out. Another technology perk of the All-New Discovery is the Optimal Rear Seat Entertainment system. This system provides 8 inch screens that are built into each front seat headrest. Mobile Hi-Definition Link and USB connections, WhiteFire digital wireless headphones, and HDMI are included.

The reveal of the All-New Land Rover Discovery featured two LEGO “Discovery Zones.” An Adventure Sone, which featured international explorer Bear Grylls, and an Equestrian Zone, which featured British rider Zara Phillips. The All-New Discovery, driven by Ben Ainslie, moved across the Tower Bridge replica followed by a life-size LEGO replica of the Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing Boat.
