The eyes of the motoring world may be locked firmly on Paris, but it is at the CEATEC Japan 2012 event, also taking place this week, that Nissan has chosen to showcase an exciting new innovation.
During the event it will showcase autonomous driving with the NSC-2015 prototype (pictured), a modified version of the Nissan LEAF.
The car will use a remote monitoring system to recognise the surrounding environment thanks to an all-around view camera and 4G communications. It will be different from a system that uses a GPS to establish a car’s exact location because it will provide precise recognition of the surrounding environment: even when underground.
When the driver exits the NSC-2015 it will start to park itself automatically using instructions from the smartphone. It looks for a vacant parking space, identifies its surroundings and when it finds an open parking space it begins automated parking.
In addition, the driver will be able to use smartphone commands to make the NSC-2015 leave a parking space and return to the place where he or she may be. The car will also feature a security camera system to alert drivers of any suspicious behaviour near the vehicle.
In addition, it is expected that Nissan will also use the event to showcase several electric cars and models for the future.
