Nissan Is Ready To Make Autonomous Driving A Reality!.

The IDS concept in Tokyo – previewing the next Leaf – looks outstanding as the firm get ready to roll-out other new cars such as the Micra, based on the cracking Sway concept.The company is dipping its toe in the red-hot market, and has begun testing an autonomous car prototype similar to the Leaf on the roads and highways of Japan, according to an Engadget report.There are a number of driving related operations which are being handled by the AI (Artificial Intelligence) but still, the performance of the vehicle, from cornering to braking to accelerating is going to imitate the driver’s style & preferences. Nissan are already planning to add an even sportier Z model for the Juke – perhaps taking design cues from the Gripz concept from the Frankfurt Motor Show last month.

According to Nissan’s president and CEO, Carlos Ghosn the idea behind this concept was to have a future of a future of zero emissions and zero fatalities motoring. The new car will feature the automaker’s Intelligent Driving System, including a Piloted Drive mode that will allow the car to essentially be a robot on wheels in the right conditions. Some other technologies which this new Nissan IDS Concept has include the Piloted Park which can be operated with the help of your smartphone, tablet or any wireless charging technology.

In doing so, it’s added greater efficiency, sharper styling, more equipment and practicality, and – what’s becoming massively important in this compact crossover class – the possibility for owners to customise the look of their car. As an extension between what is conceivable in autonomous driving and totally autonomous future, the IDS can likewise be used as a part of a customary mode where the driver holds full control, however where the full suite of driver help and crash evasion technologies are enabled. By 2018, Nissan hopes to add a changing lanes feature, and by 2020 it should be able to navigate city streets on its own without any input from the driver at all. This all depends on the announcement that the 2016 model-year Leaf would include a 280km potential range, proposing that Nissan was focused on the Leaf franchise. At the time of autonomous driving, the electric hatchback’s interior gets passenger focused and retracts the steering wheel inside the dash and replaces it with a big flat screen panel which displays information including text messages and daily appointments.

It’s small and agile enough to whip in and out of traffic around city centres, while it feels planted and assured on country roads and it cruises along using a minimum of fuel on the motorway. When it is running in autonomous mode, the car’s seats rotate inward slightly in order to achieve a sort of living room feel & promote social interaction among passengers. It’s an interesting new offering that attempts to take a stab at two extremely hot markets: the nascent autonomous vehicle market, and the growing electric car market. On the inside, the Juke gets a much more attractive cabin thanks to a new 5.8in multimedia system that’s linked to Google, while boot space is also improved – up to 345 litres from 251. There is an LED on the cars side known as the intention indicator which will start shining reed whenever a cyclist or pedestrian is nearby showing that the car is aware of their presence.

And there is Nissan’s Safety Shield – comprising a 360-degree around-view monitor, blind spot and lane departure warning, and moving object detection.
