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. 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. 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.

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. 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. Nissan aspires for a safe and trouble-free motoring future, and we plan on leading the industry in the implementation of piloted drive.” A news report published in Uncover Michigan said, “But Piloted Drive is in itself simply one large element of a much bigger autonomous driving system called Nissan Intelligent Drive that will work in concert with the driver to take the strain, cut accidents and even drive in the same way as the owner.” “Vehicle Intelligence” will play a key role in realizing the concept of Zero Fatality; therefore, the company is developing an advanced form of vehicle intelligence called “Nissan Intelligent Driving,” which is comprised of various innovative features that will be introduced in stages.

And there is Nissan’s Safety Shield – comprising a 360-degree around-view monitor, blind spot and lane departure warning, and moving object detection. The other new technology is an 8-way 360-degree view camera system that allows for accurate routing decisions when driving through intersections and sharp curving roads.
