Autonomous and connected cars are going to be very popular in the future. These cars will make consumers productive, while offering them a safe drive. The Alliance Silicon Valley Research Center recently hosted an Autonomous Drive event, demonstrating smart Renault Nissan vehicles and tech that will debut in the upcoming years. According to CEO Carlos Ghosn, more than 10 autonomous and connected cars will debut in next 4 years, on three continents.
The goal is to achieve zero emission and zero fatalities. Single lane control technology will debut later this year. In 2018, Renault Nissan will introduce multiple-lane control, allowing autonomous highway lane change and hazard avoidance. Intersection autonomy will be available starting 2020.
