Nissan's Autonomous Car Concept

Nissan Motor finally showed off the physical form of their autonomous powered electric concept car called 'Nissan IDS' at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015. Nissan IDS Concept car equipped with advanced features that can learn and adapt to the driving style of the driver.

Nissan IDS concept car is equipped with a 60 kWh battery and can take the car long distances as far as 500 km. It is certain, as a vehicle that can drive itself without being controlled, the car is able to read the conditions in the surrounding streets.

The software in the car will study and record the driver's style of driving, such as when pressing the gas pedal, braking, cornering, and so on. Then the software will imitate when the car is setup in a position autopilot or Piloted Drive mode.

Of course, the software will also receive information about road conditions from sensors and cameras, so this car safely drove though the driver's hands never touch the steering wheel and his foot did not step on the pedal.

This technology also monitors the driver's behavior so they can learn the habits on the road. Later even this technology can tell the driver the right location to stop because they know the driver's favorite places.

To switch from manual to the autopilot drive, the driver simply presses a button. Although the car is controlled manually, laser devices, sensors, and cameras, to keep working. This is to increase road safety.

"So if you stuck in traffic jams, you can hand over the wheel to the car," said Carlos Ghosn CEO of Nissan Motor at the Tokyo Motor Show on Wednesday, October 28, 2015. "You could use the time more productive by checking e-mail or participating in a video conference," he added.
Meanwhile, in the manual driving mode, the driver retains full control over the car. Nissan Intelligent Driving (NID) technology will play a more passive but still monitor the potential danger. "This is to compensate for human error that cause most accidents," said Carlos further.

Ghosn said the first phase of the Nissan IDS development is the launch of Piloted Drive 1.0 in 2016. After that will be developed Piloted Drive 2.0. "Our target is the pursuit of zero accidents and zero emissions," he said fusther. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CLEAN TECHNICA]
