Nissan Leaf Self-Driving Car First-Drive

Autonomous cars aren’t just the preserve of Google and MIT; Nissan has been working on its own self-driving technology, and we took a ride in the custom Leaf EV to see just how the future feels. The technology uses a special, second-gen version of the Safety Shield technology Nissan will debut on production models this year, upgraded with extra cameras and laser radar systems to identify and track other road users, pedestrians, and the surrounding terrain, and navigate through accordingly.

Safety Shield v.1 uses four cameras around the car to monitor for potential hazards, feeding the information to a 5.8-inch display integrated into the dashboard. It can flag up objects that might be in the driver’s blind-spot, sound an alarm if they’re tracking out of their lane, and highlight other moving cars.
