Furthering their commitment to a zero-emission and zero-fatality future for mobility, Nissan have launched their latest trials of autonomous drive prototype vehicles, taking place in East London.
Nissan’s autonomous vehicles have never previously hit European public roads, but have already found great success during testing in Japan and America; millimetre wave radar, laser scanners, cameras, high-speed computer chips and a specialised HMI (Human Machine Interface) are all part of the plethora of pioneering technology which keep Nissan prototypes on course, without a driver.
The growth of Nissan’s autonomous vehicle trials have been detailed just after the revelation that the new Qashqai and Nissan LEAF will be fitted with ProPILOT upon release; an autonomous drive system which allows the vehicle to drive itself in a single lane on the motorway.
The Nissan Serena, launched in Japan last year, showcased ProPILOT technology and brought it to the real world for the first time. As a result, the model was gilded with the 2016-2017 Japan Car of the Year Innovation Award; a mere taste of the successes which are predicted for the brand’s progression over the next 12 months.
