    Cameras Smile I guess this is the fully autonomous test vehicle (or one of them). I was reading about them running around Milton Keynes in driverless mode.

    Ladar, technically. The thing on the top spins rapidly and a laser maps its surroundings. The things on the corners look like probably a combination camera / ladar to hit the blind spots the roof-mounted one can't see.

    JLR has been doing a lot of research on self-driving vehicles - they sold a bunch of I-Pace's to Waymo (Google self-driving/rideshare project) to host autonomous driving sensors and apps. What's cool is through their sponsorship of Invictus games LR is doing this to support mobility, using wounded warriors to help them. While most of us fully-abled people might say "why bother?" to the idea of self-driving off-road vehicles, to someone with missing or damaged limbs or other impairments that might be just the thing needed.
