JAGUAR AND GOOGLE TEAM UP TO TACKLE AIR POLLUTION

With a sustainability-led roadmap that includes a reimagination of modern luxury, unique customer experiences, and positive societal impact, Jaguar is committed to becoming a net zero carbon business by 2039. As part of this transition to a greener future, Jaguar has partnered with Google to integrate the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE with air quality measuring sensors and Street View mapping technology. The first of these modified vehicles has launched in Dublin.

As the first all-electric Google Street View vehicle, the award-winning I-PACE will not only help update Google Maps, but also importantly measure street-by-street air quality in Dublin including nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and fine particles (PM2.5).

VITAL CLIMATE AND HEALTH SOLUTIONS

Equipped with specialised mobile air sensors, the I-PACE will capture data over 12 months, which Google’s scientific research partners will then analyse to develop maps of street-level air pollution. Access to this data will help scientists, researchers and policymakers create solutions to improve air quality, and encourage people to make small but important changes to benefit the climate and health of cities.

Jaguar’s engineers have worked to integrate Google Street View technology into the vehicle, including new roof mountings for the Street View camera, new rear-window glass which allows for wiring and redesigned interior switchgear to incorporate Google Street View controls.

Elena Allen, Project Manager for Business Development at Jaguar Land Rover said: “The integration of Google Street View technology with the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE is the perfect solution for measuring air quality...Partnerships like this are one of the ways we can achieve our sustainability goals and make a positive impact on society.”

Jaguar will continue to collaborate with industry leaders to enhance sustainability and reduce emissions, as well as sharing best practice in next-generation technology, data and software development.
