Carlos Ghosn, president and CEO of the Renault-Nissan alliance, announced on July 17 the launch schedule for the next automation technologies for obtaining an autonomous car. He explained that new technologies, such as traffic systems, introduced in the past four years, consumers demonstrate the viability and value systems of autonomous driving. Autonomous driving technologies are designed to increase the safety of the road and driving conditions.
“At the end of 2016, Nissan will enable next two technologies under this strategy of autonomous driving, said Mr Ghosn. We bring to market a pilot project, a technology capable of driving cars-and automatically Security- while in traffic. We will also develop a system for fully automatic parking available across the range of the vehicle. ”
He added: “This will be followed in 2018 by the introduction of line control, allowing the cars to automatically negotiate the line changes. And before the end of the decade, we will introduce the automatic intersection technologies, allowing vehicles to negotiate the crossing under the driver’s intervention. “
