Jaguar and Land Rover drivers will also be able to recharge their virtual wallet by more conventional means.
This new scheme marks a further step towards the companys ambition to achieve “zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion” by allowing vehicles to participate in the data collection process.
By allowing drivers to alert others to heavy traffic and bad roads, according to JLR, the new technology could encourage smoother traffic, thereby reducing overall tailpipe emissions.
Russell Vickers, JLR software architect, said: “In the future, an autonomous car could be driven to a charging station, recharged and paid for, while its owner could choose to participate in the shared economy.
JLR has recently unveiled plans to develop a system that will project the steering of a vehicle on the road, while a detailed initiative late last year could soon equip JLR models with software to help them avoid red lights.
