Nissan Using NASA's Mars Rover Technology for Autonomous Car


At CES 2018, Nissan North America  announced an agreement with NASA Ames Research Center to collaborate on research and technology development for future autonomous mobility services. Last year at CES 2017, Nissan introduced Nissan Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM), a platform for managing fleets of autonomous vehicles, developed from NASA's Mars Rover technology. This new phase in the joint collaboration will further develop the technology and test the use of SAM for managing autonomous transportation services, ahead of public implementations.
