Nissan plans driverless car sales by 2020
Nissan plans to introduce driverless cars by 2020. The technology already exists to reduce car crashes. The TV commercials with the words “rear-ended”, T-boned”, “head-on” may be over. There will be other problems to overcome to prevent injuries. An example is the New York tour bus crash which injured many and killed some passengers. The driver was following directions from a personal GPS, and drove into an overpass causing an horrific bus accident. All in all, the technology looks promising. Typically, industry drags its feet on safety issues. It’s good to see Nissan pushing the envelope forward, particularly if it makes safer driving. Have a good Labor Day weekend.
