You guessed it! Another driverless car post! To hell with it, I love these things. It’s so exciting to imagine that this could actually be the future. And with Nissan aiming to have steer by wire technology in cars by 2013 then I really do think this is going to happen.
This specially adapted Nissan Leaf is fitted with sensors that correspond with lines and spacing on the floor and in its visual surrounding.
The interesting thing about this other than the fact it parks itself , is that when you have driven it to your destination, you send instructions from a smartphone for where you think it should park. Later having the option to use it to call the car back.
Of course something as special as this may be targeted by the likes of thieves, but that’s where the sensory cameras show off a double use of being able to see that car’s surroundings from a 360 point of view. A thief doesn’t stand a chance!
Nissan say they’re not sure when the concept will actually be put into major creation as the sensors currently only work using the reflective white paint. Currently the vehicle is best suited to the likes of a smaller environment like a car park than entire road networks.
