Nissan demonstrates its autonomous prototype on the streets of Tokyo

Nissan demonstrates its autonomous prototype on the streets of Tokyo

At the ongoing Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan showcased the IMx all-electric crossover with a fully autonomous technology. The IMx concept is a glimpse of the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility. It demonstrates the prowess of Nissan’s fully-autonomous ProPilot technology. Now, to showcase how serious they are about autonomy, Nissan took on the streets of Tokyo with their most advanced autonomous prototype. 

The Japanese carmaker tested the new generation of the ProPilot on a highly modified Infiniti Q50 sedan. The prototype employs artificial intelligence which is fed information through 12 sonars, 12 cameras, nine millimetre-wave radars, six laser scanners and a high-definition map. This hardware analyses complex scenario in real time and navigates accordingly in different city conditions, boasts the Kanagawa-based carmaker.

Along with the hardware update, the software has also been improved to wade through real-time obstacles. The technology enables the vehicle to operate autonomously on urban roads and freeways. The driver only has to select a destination using the navigation system and the car can take care of the rest.

Takao Asami, Nissan’s senior vice president, talking about their autonomous future, said, “Our next-generation ProPilot prototype showcases technology that will be available for real-world use from 2020. Today’s demonstration is another example of our successful work toward creating an autonomous driving future for all.”

Nissan revealed the new-generation Leaf EV with their latest ProPilot tech. It is equipped with a single-lane autonomous driving technology that can be used on highways. Other models that include the ProPilot are the Serena, X-Trail and Rogue. The Qashqai SUV is slated to join the league sometime next year.
