Nissan showcases innovative solutions to accelerate integration of autonomous drive into society at CeBIT in Germany

World News: . []

HANOVER, Germany – Just weeks after demonstrating its advanced autonomous drive technology on public roads in Europe, Nissan today makes its debut at CeBIT, Europe's largest digital expo, showcasing innovations set to revolutionize the future of motoring.At the heart of its display at CeBIT, Nissan will showcase another autonomous innovation – Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM) system – which was demonstrated earlier this year at CES.Developed from NASA technology, SAM partners in-vehicle artificial intelligence with human support to help autonomous vehicles make decisions in unpredictable situations such as accidents, road construction, or other obstacles. With SAM, the autonomous vehicle becomes aware of when it should attempt to negotiate the situation by itself, and when it should seek human assistance. Knowing how to maneuver these situations will be key to realizing a fully autonomous driving future.Nissan's exhibit is located in the event's Japanese Pavilion, hosted by the Japanese External Trade Organization (JETRO). The Pavilion features over 100 companies and organizations showcasing uniquely Japanese inventions and technology.'Autonomous drive technologies are set to revolutionize the future of mobility, providing more safety, convenience and driving pleasure for everyone,' said Ponz Pandikuthira, vice president Product Planning, Nissan Europe. 'These systems will guarantee a drastic reduction in road traffic accidents and that's a key part of Nissan's Intelligent Mobility blueprint as we strive towards a zero emissions, zero fatalities future.'Nissan's presence at CeBIT follows a major milestone in the company's development of autonomous drive technology that saw Nissan stage the first European demonstration of its technology in February this year. More than 100 people, comprising media, public officials and industry stakeholders experienced first-hand the real-world testing of Nissan's advanced autonomous drive technology on public roads in London in an all-electric Nissan LEAF, the world's best-selling electric vehicle.Nissan has also confirmed that phase one of its innovative ProPILOT autonomous drive technology will be made available in the new Nissan Qashqai launching in FY17 and the second-generation model of the Nissan LEAF coming soon. This technology enables single lane autonomous driving on motorways and is already available on the Nissan Serena, which was launched in Japan last year.In the coming years up until 2020, Nissan's autonomous drive technology will offer increasing levels of autonomy, with the system eventually able to navigate city intersections. Set to make driving safer and more enjoyable, development of autonomous drive technology is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.Related: Nissan conducts on-road autonomous vehicle testing in EuropeHands-free: What it's like to 'Drive' an autonomous drive car – by Carlos GhosnNissan's new Serena ProPILOT technology makes autonomous drive first for Japanese automakersPeople behind the ProPILOT: What does an anthropologist bring to autonomous driving design? About Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
