The company’s autonomous driving tech was tested on a modified Infiniti Q50.

The company recently tested a prototype of its most advanced autonomous driving technology, which it states will hit production cars by 2020.

The company’s ProPilot technology was tested on the streets of Tokyo on a modified Infiniti Q50 sports sedan. The car works autonomously on urban roads and freeways using input from 12 sonars, 12 cameras, nine millimetre-wave radars, six laser scanners and a high-definition map to analyse complex scenarios in real time. This allows it to move safely through challenging city conditions.

“Ingenuity is at the heart of everything we do at Nissan,” said Takao Asami, Nissan’s senior vice-president in charge of research and advanced engineering. “Our next-generation ProPilot prototype showcases technology that will be available for real-world use from 2020. Today’s demonstration is another example of our successful work toward creating an autonomous driving future for all.”
