Nissan conducts first on-road test of prototype vehicle
YOKOHAMA, Japan (October 29 2015) – Nissan has begun testing its first prototype vehicle that demonstrates piloted drive on both highway and city/urban roads. Nissan maintains two corporate visions of a sustainable mobile society: "Zero Emission" and "Zero Fatality." For Zero Emission, the company's goal is to eliminate the emission of CO2 gasses from Nissan vehicles; while Zero Fatality is an aspirational goal that aims to eliminate virtually all fatalities stemming from traffic accidents. "Vehicle Intelligence" will play a key role in realizing the concept of Zero Fatality; therefore, the company is developing an advanced form of vehicle intelligence called "Nissan Intelligent Driving," which is comprised of various innovative features that will be introduced in stages.
