During the next four years, Nissan will launch vehicles with increased autonomous capabilities like “multiple-lane control,” which can autonomously negotiate hazards and change lanes during highway driving. And by the end of the decade, Nissan will introduce “inner-city” autonomy, enabling vehicles to negotiate city cross-roads and intersections without driver intervention.
The technology will be installed on mainstream, mass-market cars at affordable prices, with Piloted Drive 1.0 coming to Japan in 2016. An on-road demo event in Europe in 2016, will showcase the maturity of Nissan’s autonomous drive technology.
