Nissan announces new electric mobility solutions and autonomous driving at CES 2017

During Nissan's keynote speech at CES in Las Vegas, CEO Carlos Ghosn outlined the new technologies that will underpin the company's self-driving cars and future mobility efforts.

"Our goal is to change the transportation infrastructure", said Maarten Sierhuis, former NASA scientist and director of the Nissan Research Center in Silicon Valley.

Diving into connected cars, which combines Nissan Intelligent Driving and Nissan Intelligent Integration, Ghosn said the Renault-Nissan Alliance will continue its partnership with Microsoft to build the next generation of connected auto technologies and HMI, which features Azure, Office 365, Cortana and other intelligent cloud services provided by the software giant.

The technology, the company believes, will enable millions of driverless cars to co-exist with human drivers at an accelerated pace. The new model will be the successor to the most popular electric vehicle in the world and will include support for Nissan's ProPilot autonomous driving technology.

The "Nissan Intelligent Mobility" (NIM) initiative is broken into three parts: Intelligent Driving, Intelligent Power, and Intelligent Integration. Obviously, the first is that it could help improve AI in our self-driving vehicles, while the second is that it could allow for self-driving cars to be rolled out on a wider scale faster. The first is a new technology called SAM or Seamless Autonomous Mobility, a development from NASA technology that combines in-vehicle artificial intelligence (AI) with human support. Both companies will test the vehicles for practical use as a pilot project by 2020 in the metropolitan area of Tokyo.

Nissan had previously said it plans to offer 10 models of auto with some level of autonomous driving by 2020. "How can we teach that to cars?"

Nissan adds that it focusing on vehicle electrification and diversifying its powertrains and fuel systems to suit markets around the world.

Also helping this on the way will be Nissan's newly announced partnership with 100 Resilient Cities - which aims to ready cities around the world for the next generation of vehicle technology, including mainstream autonomous and electric cars.

Nissan has also given a preview of some of the next-generation Leaf's onboard technology. What this means is that Cortana is coming to your vehicle and she is expected to make your driving experience seamless and efficient. Nissan also announced a partnership with DeNA to begin testing that will help develop self-driving vehicles for commercial applications.

The automaker also announced a new partnership with 100 Resilient Cities (100 RC) which is a non-profit working to help cities build resilience to physical, social, and economic challenges.
