Move Over Google, Meet The Self-Driving Nissan Leaf

What Google can do with a Toyota Prius, someone else can do with a Nissan Leaf.

At least, that’s the message NIssan wants to send after showcasing its own take on Google’s automated car at the 2012 Ceatec exhibition in Japan.

As Engadget reports, the self-driving Nissan Leaf can move itself forward slowly, stop at crosswalks, park itself, and even let you know if someone is trying to break in.

Sadly, the technology demonstrated in Nissan’s first automated electric car isn’t quite at the level yet where it could drive on a busy public highway, or speed down an autobahn without human interaction.

For now, that doesn’t bother the Nissan engineers working on the project.

After all, self-driving cars aren’t yet legal for use on public roads in Japan.
