Nissan Robot Car Acquires License: Skynet Is Just Around The Corner
September 27th, 2013
Nissan seems keen to give Google a run for their money in the autonomous vehicle technology category, and the Japanese giant is working hard at creating functional robot vehicles for 2020 and beyond.
Nissan has recently been able to pick up an official Japanese license plate to start testing smart driving systems in real world driving environments.
The car’s brains have been stuffed into an all-electric Nissan Leaf. Some of the features include automatic lane centering as well as adaptive cruise control. The vehicle will also support automatic exiting for freeways, automatic lane changes, and the ability to overtake slower or stopped cars as well.
Soon enough, we won’t even have to drive our cars, and maybe texting and driving will be okay.
