Nissan and Japanese company DeNA, a developer of mobile and online services, are to begin testing technology for driverless vehicles for commercial services.
The first phase will begin in designated zones in Japan. By 2020, Nissan and DeNA plan to expand the scope of their tests to include the commercial usage of driverless technology for mobility services in the Tokyo metropolitan area.
Nissan is to build the prototype electric vehicles while DeNA will provide its expertise in creating online and mobile user experiences to build and lead the information technology systems.
