Nissan reveals plans for autonomous driving

Nissan reveals plans for autonomous driving

Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan, has announced several technologies as part of the ‘Nissan Intelligent Mobility’ at the 2017 CES in Las Vegas which will advance their cars towards zero-emissions and autonomous driving.

To speed up the process and get autonomous driving cars safely on to the road, Ghosn announced a breakthrough technology called "Seamless Autonomous Mobility," or SAM. Developed from NASA technology, SAM partners in-vehicle artificial intelligence (AI) with human support to help autonomous vehicles make decisions in unpredictable situations and build the knowledge of in-vehicle AI. He further added that Nissan and Japanese internet company DeNA will begin tests to develop driverless vehicles for commercial services, the first phase of which, will begin testing this year in designated zones in Japan, and should be streamlined by the year 2020.

Nissan has also announced plans to launch a new LEAF in the near future with ProPILOT technology that allows for autonomous driving on single lane highways. On the other hand, the Renault-Nissan Alliance will continue its partnership with Microsoft to build the next generation of connected car technologies. So expect Microsoft's personal assistant technology ‘Cortana’ (Microsoft’s version of Google Now and Siri) to make driving more efficient and seamless. 

"At Nissan, from the beginning, we work to bring the right technologies for the full spectrum of our vehicles and the most amount of people," said Ghosn in his keynote. "This takes more than innovation. It takes ingenuity. And it's exactly what we deliver through Nissan Intelligent Mobility."
