So much so that it will be one of the models that will showcase whatever developments Nissan makes in autonomous driving. Besides the Leaf, the Infiniti is also going to see a lot of autonomous tweaks.</p> <p>The carmaker is hoping to have fully automated parking available in its vehicles, as well as the Traffic Jam Assistant feature that lets the car go autonomous in heavy traffic. Nissan is also working on a system that will help cars change lanes: adaptive cruise control will steer a the vehicle around slower traffic when nearby lanes are clear of obstruction. Another feature would be the ability for cars to negotiate city intersections without driver input.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/google/nissan-dumps-driver-self-driving-cars-becomes-first-be-allowed-japanese-roads/news">Nissan&#39;s &quot;Tron&quot; self-driving car becomes first to be allowed on Japanese highways</a></strong></p> <p>Exciting developments indeed &ndash; though the question is whether Nissan would get approval. Paramount would be safety concerns: would it be wise or proven safe to let a car navigate its way out of traffic without a person deciding just where and when to turn?</p> <p>But if the technology is there, why not? Traffic jams are a major source of stress for the average driver and prove overly ideal in creating traffic accidents. Less driving, more intelligent navigating is good, we say.

High-resolution rear-facing cameras fed live footage to a large LCD monitor where the mirror would traditionally sit.</p> <p>The addition of an in-built radar system also alerted drivers to surrounding traffic and even displayed closing speeds via a series of coloured arrows.</p> <p>For example, when a pesky Audi closed in at speed behind the ZEOD, the arrows on the display pulsed red above that vehicle. Vehicles racing in the ZEOD&#39;s blindspot would similarly be flagged up with a large arrow pointing towards the potential danger. Conversely, slower cars - and there were a fair few - were marked out by a static yellow dot that ensured drivers Satoshi Motoyama, Lucas Ordóñez and Wolfgang Reip could keep an eye on traffic.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/nissan-zeod-rc-inside-future-endurance-racing/feature" target="_blank">Nissan ZEOD RC: inside the future of endurance racing</a></strong></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nissan ZEOD RC" alt="Nissan ZEOD RC" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/nissan-zeod-c-02.jpg?1403055495" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/nissan/nissan-s-hybrid-racer-completes-all-electric-lap-le-mans-retires-early/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/nissan/nissan-s-hybrid-racer-completes-all-electric-lap-le-mans-retires-early/news#comments Cars Nissan Tue, 17 Jun 2014 15:07:39 +0000 Stephen Graves 1439379 at http://www.stuff.tv Nissan's 'Tron' self-driving car becomes first to be allowed on Japanese highways http://www.stuff.tv/google/nissan-dumps-driver-self-driving-cars-becomes-first-be-allowed-japanese-roads/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Google isn&#039;t the only firm teaching cars to drive themselves - Nissan recently took it&#039;s self-driver for a spin on Japan&#039;s highways for the first time. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The Autonomous Leaf steering wheel" alt="The Autonomous Leaf steering wheel" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/vlcsnap-2013-09-30-18h22m54s46-300x168.jpg?1385720812" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>The car giant says it is &#39;very near to creating fully autonomous drive&#39;.
