Jaguar Land Rover has been awarded the prestigious 'Pioneer Award' for its InControlTM smart connectivity and infotainment system by two leading German magazines. Editors of Auto Bild and Computer Bild gave the award as part of the reader's choice "Connected Car Award 2014".

Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart, Group Engineering Director at Jaguar Land Rover, accepted the award and said: "We are very proud to receive such an important technology award in Germany. It will inspire our engineers to develop even more innovative and pioneering technology to delight our Jaguar and Land Rover customers around the world. It is a great honour for Jaguar Land Rover to be recognised as an automotive company at the cutting edge of innovation."

The InControl AppsTM system enables the driver to remotely connect with the car, to view information and give the car instructions from their phone such as remote locking, checking fuel levels, or even heating or cooling the car before you get to it.

A suite of supported apps, such as calendars, parking space finder and infotainment tools, allows drivers and passengers to connect to information and entertainment to improve the driving experience. Each of these apps has been optimised in their display and functionality to make them controllable via the car's touchscreen and voice, to minimise distraction and make them 'Right for Driving'. It is like having your smartphone installed in your dashboard.

Auto Bild recognised how Jaguar Land Rover has created an innovative, cross-platform way for customers to connect to their car. Auto Bild said:

"Jaguar Land Rover has developed its own system that supports both Android and iOS (iPhone) operating systems. InControlTM Remote also enables remote control of various vehicle functions via the apps system."

Developed in cooperation with technology partner BOSCH SoftTech, InControl AppsTM is a bridge between the smartphone and the car. It helps customers to seamlessly control their apps from their car - and their car from their phone.

Jaguar Land Rover was at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month, where Seeing Machines demonstrated its cutting-edge Driver Monitor System (DMS) in a Jaguar F-Type prototype on the Intel stand. The innovative system tracks the driver's eyes and alerts the driver when they aren't looking at the road, even if they are wearing sunglasses. DMS could be used to alert the driver to hazards earlier, or even enhance the settings of on-board safety systems, to reflect the driver's lack of attention.

The figures provided are as a result of official manufacturer's tests in accordance with EU legislation. A vehicle's actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.

The figures provided are NEDCeq calculated from official manufacturer’s WLTP tests in accordance with EU legislation. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2 and fuel economy figures may vary according to wheel fitment and optional extras fitted. NEDCeq are figures calculated using a Government formula from WLTP figures equivalent to what they would have been under the old NEDC test. The correct tax treatment can then be applied.

The figures provided are WLTP. WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO2 figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

TEL (Test Energy Low) and TEH (Test Energy High) figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. TEL refers to the lowest/most economical figures (with the lightest set of options). TEH refers to the highest/least economical figures (with the heaviest set of options). WLTP legislation dictates that where there is <5g CO2 variance between TEL and TEH, only the TEH is declared.
