One thing was made clear by Nissan’s Dan Teeter at Telematics Detroit this month; autonomous vehicles are not only on Nissan’s mind, but a standard option in their near-future product line.
Autonomous vehicles have dominated the automotive spotlight over the last few months. Google announced their intentions to roll out driverless vehicles in the coming years. ADAS as a paving stone to autonomous was a recurring theme at CTS 2014. Now Nissan have reaffirmed that their 2020 collision free goal remains on track. As autonomous vehicles become a focal point for the industry and consumers, Telematics Update will explore the key challenges and opportunities ahead for this technology at Advanced Automotive Safety USA Conference and Exhibition 2014 (July 8-9, Hotel Baronette Renaissance, Novi, MI). The event will unite key industry figures such as ITS America, Nissan, Honda, Insurnce Institute for Highway Safety, Kapsch, Visteon and UMTRI to discuss crucial topics on driverless vehicles such as testing methods, technology breakthroughs and consumer acceptance.

‘An appealing vision’ that we need to build in the present
Meredith Evans, Project Director at Telematics Update commented, “Nissan are very clearly recognizing the potential of autonomous technologies. Getting this technology on the road will save lives, and change the way in which we think about driving altogether. We know that once proven effective these autonomous vehicles will be hugely beneficial to safety, but we have to iron out the creases out before this can happen. The 2020 vision is appealing, and the preparations to achieve this have to be happening now, which is why events such as this to unite and learn are so important.”
Nissan will be sharing their thoughts at Advanced Automotive Safety USA 2014 (July 8-9, 2014, Novi, Michigan) conference which will bring together leaders from the intelligent transport industry to discuss these integral topics. The industry is seeking fresh answers, solutions and explanation. Topics include:
The event will gather industry fore-runners from ITS America, Nissan, GM, Hyundai, Kia, Honda, Toyota, Denso, Center for Automotive Research, CVTA, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, UMTRI, AASHTO and many more.
150+ executives (OEMs, government, tier 1 and supplier executives) are set to attend the conference and define the next steps toward the dawn of a new era of intelligent transportation.
