The software uses a range of variables including your calendar, the time of day, traffic conditions and the weather to predict driver behaviour and take over many of the daily driving “chores”, allowing the driver to focus on the road ahead.

Jaguar’s intelligent car will also review the driver’s schedule for the day and intelligently pre-set the navigation.
