Nissan has been showcasing its autonomous driving technology on the streets of London.
The real-world testing of its next generation prototype vehicles in the east of London was the first such test by Nissan on public roads in Europe, after similar trials in Asia and the US.
The scanners, cameras and computer chips undepinning Nissan’s technology enable the vehicle to operate in an autonomous manner on both highway and city roads including runabouts – once the destination points are entered into the navigation system.
“Innovation and ingenuity is at the heart of the Nissan brand and its people,” said Takao Asami, senior vice president, Research and Advanced Engineering at Nissan. “This test of Nissan’s forthcoming autonomous drive technology in the demanding conditions of London streets underlines our commitment to delivering Nissan Intelligent Mobility to our customers.”
