Nissan NSC-2015, the Car That Has a Mind of Its Own! Drives and Parks All By Itself

At the Ceatec 2012 show in Tokyo, we saw the launch of the NSC-2015, which is a modified version of Nissan’s Leaf model. At a first look, you may not find anything particularly extraordinary about the car, but on closer look, you will get to know that this is anything but an ordinary car. This brand new baby from Nissan does not need a driver to drive it! It has the capacity to not only drive itself, but park the car too. This prototype electric car is a highly-modified ver­sion of the Nis­san Leaf con­nected to cloud com­put­ing ser­vices.

The car’s technology encompasses on-board sensors and cameras, several computers and a connection to the cloud. Well, it practically works this way, once you land up at the entrance to a parking lot; you have to simply hop out and hit the ‘park’ button on its accompanying smartphone app. The car then drives off, finds a free space and parks itself – perfectly. When you return, you ‘call’ your car and wait for it to arrive. During the presentation, a Nissan representative practically explained the concept too; on his clicking a few buttons, the drove by itself towards him.
