Recently, Jaguar Land Rover has revealed prototype doors that can open by themselves if the person approaches or gives a certain gesture. This technology has already been seen with Teslas and even Rolls Royce has been in on the action.

The system has multiple motion sensors and a keyless entry to detect when the driver wants to come inside of the vehicle.

Former Royal Marine Commando and triple amputee Mark Ormrod says that the technology will be very helpful when coming to people with disabilities.

"This innovative Jaguar Land Rover technology would be such a benefit to me and has real power to change lives for those who face problems getting in and out of the car."

"Opening and closing the car door may seem like such an insignificant task to many people but sometimes it’s the small, everyday obstacles which people take for granted that are most frustrating to overcome for those living with disabilities,” Mark said.

Jaguar Land Rover also claim the technology will help whenever a person's hands can't move freely enough to open the doors while carrying loads of groceries.

Also like the Rolls Royce system, Jaguar Land Rover's doors can be closed from the inside with a press of a overhead button.

To ensure that the doors don't accidently open into other objects or obstacles radar sensors has been fitted to ensure to avoid this problem. The driver can also conquer the doors to lock when they walk away.

  • I’m with Mark. It is the simple every day things that matter. I see this in my work more often than not and I am reminded of Prince Henry saying similar things at the Sydney Invictus games recently. This looks like a great idea and well worth it, if it’s introduced.

  • Useful for people with disabilities. But for able bodied people it's going to be just laziness. Plus this is another item to go wrong and you could get stuck in the car.
