Nissan CEO, Carlos Ghosn, announces new technologies and partnerships in his 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) keynote address in Las Vegas.
Nissan’s latest technologies and innovations promise to advance mobility toward a zero-emission, zero-fatality future on the roads.
During his CES keynote, Ghosn announced several initiatives, which are part of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into wider society.
- Nissan’s Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM) system. Developed from NASA technology, SAM partners in-vehicle artificial intelligence (AI) with human support to help autonomous vehicles make decisions in unpredictable situations and build the knowledge of in-vehicle AI.
- Nissan and Japanese Internet company DeNA will begin tests aimed at developing driverless vehicles for commercial services. The first phase of testing will begin this year in designated zones in Japan.
- A new Nissan LEAF will be coming in the near future. The model will be equipped with ProPILOT technology, enabling autonomous drive functionality for single-lane highway driving.
“At Nissan, from the beginning, we work to bring the right technologies for the full spectrum of our vehicles and the most amount of people,” said Ghosn in his keynote. “This takes more than innovation. It takes ingenuity. And it’s exactly what we deliver through Nissan Intelligent Mobility.”
