The Nissan IDS Concept: The Future of Autonomous Driving

Nissan IDS ConceptThe demand for zero-emission Electric Vehicles (EVs) and autonomous driving is ever growing, and Nissan wants to capitalize on the wide-open markets. Engineers have significant progression in both fields at the forefront of their minds, and they are motivated to revolutionize the ways that people travel. This mission is slowly coming to fruition, especially with the recent reveal of the Nissan IDS Concept in Japan.

It’s safe to say that, with vehicles such as the Nissan IDS Concept set for release in the imminent future, driving is about to get a whole lot easier and more eco-friendly. Pairing advanced vehicle control and safety technologies with groundbreaking artificial intelligence (AI), Nissan plans to create a driving experience like never before. Sooner or later, your car will be guiding itself around town while keeping you safer and more entertained than any current vehicle ever could.

“In every situation, it is about giving the driver more choices and greater control. And the driver will remain the focus of our technology development efforts,” said Nissan president and CEO Carlos Ghosn according to a press release.

So while you may not always be steering your vehicle in the near future, the whole experience will be centered around the driver and his or her peace of mind. Much of the research that has gone into the IDS Concept has revolved around safety and how exactly Nissan can do their part to reach the ultimate goal — zero traffic fatalities (as well as zero emissions).

Evolving EV technology is also a big part of the plan at Nissan, with long-distance, eco-friendly driving of the utmost importance. The engineers are having a fun time designing futuristic zero-emission vehicles that still offer steadfast performance.
