The notion of jet space or jet bundle is a generalization of the notion of tangent spaces and tangent bundles, respectively. While a tangent vector is an equivalence class of germs of curves with order-$1$ tangency at a given point in the target, jet spaces are equivalence classes of germs of smooth maps with respect to (finite) order-$k$ tangency at some point in the target.
One version in algebraic geometry is jet scheme.
From the nPOV, the map from a bundle to its jet bundle can be understood in terms of the jet comonad.
Jet bundles were first introduced by Charles Ehresmann.
