Autonomous service plans announced

Nissan is going to test a new autonomous vehicle service in Japan.

The car giant along with games company (AI) DeNA are going to test their new ‘robo-vehicle mobility service’ Easy Ride – in Yokohama – with the public next March.

Underpinned by a concept of ‘more freedom of mobility’ the pair plan to develop the platform to allow users to access the whole service via an app that will be available in multiple languages. A ‘remote monitoring system’ will be established to keep consumers safe.

Dependent on the reasons for travel, Easy Ride will be able to recommend local sights that people can enjoy.

Nissan and DeNA ultimately see the service as complementing existing transportation options, while reinvigorating urban areas.

It is the latest autonomous initiative supported by Nissan, which has been testing its self-driving tech worldwide over the last year.
