Nissan has tested its most advanced autonomous driving technology the next-generation ProPILOT system on a modified Infiniti Q50 on public roads in Tokyo, Japan.
The prototype’s artificial intelligence uses input from 12 sonars, 12 cameras, nine millimeter-wave radars, six laser scanners and a high-definition map to analyze complex scenarios in real time and navigate smoothly through challenging city conditions such as crossing busy intersections. These hardware upgrades, along with software improvements, also ensure smooth transitions when encountering obstacles in the road.
“Ingenuity is at the heart of everything we do at Nissan. Our next-generation ProPILOT prototype showcases technology that will be available for real-world use from 2020. Today’s demonstration is another example of our successful work toward creating an autonomous driving future for all,” said Takao Asami, senior vice president of research and advanced engineering at Nissan.
