In a bid to create a roadmap for the era and trade evolution of the automobile trade, Nissan has introduced a contemporary settlement with NASA. NASA Ames Research Centre in California’s Silicon Valley and Nissan will collaborate on analysis and era development for future autonomous mobility services and products, including a running demonstration in Silicon Valley.
Researchers from the Nissan Research Centre in Silicon Valley and NASA Ames were running in combination to advance autonomous automobile methods. In January closing 12 months, on the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nissan presented Nissan Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM), a brand new platform for managing fleets of autonomous cars, advanced from NASA era.
“We built SAM from technology NASA developed for managing interplanetary rovers as they move around unpredictable landscapes,” stated Maarten Sierhuis, director of the Nissan Research Centre in Silicon Valley.
“The final stage of our existing research agreement with NASA will bring us closer to that goal and test SAM in a working demonstration on public streets,” he added. The analysis collaboration with NASA roadmap is composed of 3 workstreams of inter-related inventions in autonomous power (Intelligent Drive), electrification (Intelligent Power) and infrastructure applied sciences (Intelligent Integration).
“One of NASA’s strategic goals is to transfer the technology developed to advance NASA mission and programme objectives to broader commercial and social applications,” stated Eugene Tu, Centre Director, NASA Ames.
