Just recently we reported that Ford was looking at having a removable steering wheel (and pedals), now Jaguar Land Rover is set to debut this artificial intelligence steering wheel.

Set to debut at a ‘Tech Fest’ in London, the car/SUV manufacturer says the steering wheel concept, which is known as ‘Sayer’, lives in your home and becomes your trusted companion.

It could also be the only part of a car that you actually own…

Sayer is the first voice-activated artificial intelligence (AI) steering wheel that will be able to carry out hundreds of tasks.

Sayer could signal your membership of our on-demand service club. A club which offers either sole ownership or the option of sharing the car with others in your community.

Imagine a future of autonomous, connected and electric cars where you don’t own a single car, but instead call upon the vehicle of your choice where and when you need it.

That’s a future vision Jaguar Land Rover is exploring with Sayer, the connected steering wheel that could be the only part of the car you own.

The concept steering wheel was named after Malcolm Sayer, a prominent Jaguar designer from the 1950’s to the 1970’s.

We will keep you updated with any further details on the Sayer steering wheel concept as they come to hand.
