Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has revealed that a specialist “wellness research” team has created an algorithm to help reduce vehicle motion sickness by up to 60%. The algorithm generates a “wellness score” for each passenger. When it detects changes in the score it can automatically initialize personalization of both vehicle dynamics and cabin settings to reduce the effects of motion sickness.

Dr. Steve Iley, JLR's Chief Medical Officer, described the research's “solid scientific foundation” as having created a solution regardless of an individual's susceptibility to travel sickness. Young children are most likely to suffer symptoms: “I am particularly excited by the benefits this research can have in making long journeys comfortable and stress-free for families.”
