Nissan to launch self-driving cars by 2022
08 December 2017, 01:08 | Ross Houston
In January 2017 both companies have collaborated to develop a new mobility based on an autonomous driving technology
Nissan and DeNA will recruit participants for a field test of the Easy Ride mobility service in Yokohama, Japan, until 15 January 2018...
Tech Crunch reports that the carmaker is working with Japanese software maker DeNA to create the autonomous ride-hailing service which will be trialled on Japanese Roads.
The companies say they are aiming to combine the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision through technological assets in autonomous driving, vehicle electrification and connected cars, with DeNA using its expertise in the internet and artificial intelligence to develope and operate driverless mobility services.
Nissan and DeNA said they would hold public tests over a two-week period in Yokohama in March, under which riders can use an app developed by DeNA to summon self-driving versions of Nissan's Leaf electric cars to travel to pre-mapped destinations and pay fares.
The project combines Nissan's Intelligent Mobility technology, which ensures the robot vehicle navigates roads safely, with DeNA's experience in developing and operating self-driving mobility services using its experience in artificial intelligence and the internet.
The automaker has been working with local internet and software company DeNA since January this year to develop its driverless technology, which is fitted to modified models of Nissan's Leaf electric auto.
Based on the objectives, customers can choose recommended local destinations and sightseeing routes.
That's a trip many of us would like to take but only a select few can experience through Nissan's public field test of new robo-vehicle mobility service, Easy Ride. It's noteworthy here, though, that the two companies have actually been performing field testing of their "Easy Ride" system since earlier this year.
Nissan said a driver will sit behind the steering wheel during the test, though the vehicles will handle the driving mostly by themselves.
This new service is aimed at introducing a new mobility option to complement the area's current transportation network.
