Nissan Unveils Grand Plans for Driverless Cars


For some driving is a sport; for others, a possible do-without. Nissan, always at the forefront of both consumer concern and groundbreaking technology, reveals future plans for autonomous driverless cars to be on the market by 2020.

Working with top universities in the technological field such as MIT, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, Oxford and the University of Tokyo, Nissan is currently building autonomous driving grounds, structured similarly to urban driving environments, to thoroughly test out models before taking them onto real roads by the end of the 2018's fiscal year.

Nissan has stated that they will have autonomous cars available for consumers within two model generations. Despite its seemingly far-out technology, Nissan plans on pricing them realistically for the average consumer.
