Nissan unleashes its autonomous car prototype in Japan
To make driving on busy urban roads possible, the Japanese corporation created a high-spec laser scanner that uses 3D measurement to determine the vehicle's distance from objects in the environment. It designed an eight-way camera with a 360-degree view of its surroundings to help the system make a decision when crossing intersections, as well. Just recently, Nissan also unveiled its IDS concept vehicle: an EV loaded with all these autonomous functions and can offer restaurant recommendations.
