You know that feeling when something is “just right”: like your first sip of coffee or when you realise it’s Sunday and can turnover, snugly, back to sleep. Well, that “just right” feeling can be felt in the Jaguar E-PACE. It can’t control what the traffic is doing, or the weather (although Jaguar may be working on that), but it can predict how you like to drive, and how you experience your time in this car.
Jaguar describe this “just right” feeling as: “self-learning”. This new update for this sporty compact SUV is called Smart Settings technology. Other recent updates includes Adaptive Dynamics suspension set-up and a cost-effective and efficient 200PS petrol engine. But let’s just talk about the tech.
Jaguar E-PACE self-learning technology
Jaguar’s Smart Setting technology debuted on the all-electric I-PACE. This technology learns the driver’s habits and anticipates their needs to make their life easier. Like having a butler on-board, but less creepy.
The smart part, happens as you approach the car. The Jaguar E-PACE recognises the approaching driver, based on both a key fob and smartphone Bluetooth signal. The vehicle will then adjust the seat, climate and infotainment system based on the driver’s normal preference.
Over time, algorithms tailor settings based on time, location, weather and behaviour patterns – for example, pre-heating the steering wheel and seats on a cold day, or changing the radio station on a particular day of the week or time of day.
The Intelligent Phone Reminder function will also tell the driver if they forget their smartphone, while the Predictive Call List learns patterns of phone use to cue up popular contacts at the appropriate time.
James Wilson, of FCS Vehicle Solutions says: “Up to eight profiles can be set up on the Jaguar E-PACE, making it a worthwhile offering for fleets users and those who share their vehicle.”
Smart Settings is offered as part of the Connect Pro Pack, which also consists of a 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot, Pro Services and Navigation Pro – offering real-time traffic information, door-to-door routing from your smartphone, street view and parking availability.
