NASA is working with Nissan to technology for self-propelled vehicles




Nissan is a collaboration with NASA committed to the development of autonomous vehicles. The developing technology can be beneficial not only for self-propelled cars, but also for robbers who bet on NASA Mars.

The cooperation agreement has a term of five years. Nissan will make the investigation particularly in Silicon Valley place, where it has an R & D laboratory. NASA also has its Ames Research Center in California active. There is carried out research into robotics.

Nissan says a lot to learn from the technology that NASA has used in the two robot carts that are placed on the surface of Mars, Spirit and Opportunity. The so-called Mars Rovers have proved very reliable. Moreover, NASA has developed the technology to control the robot carts over a distance of millions of kilometers.

NASA, in turn, might be able to benefit from the research that Nissan exports to autonomous vehicles. Nissan performs include tests with electric cars in urban areas completely automatically find their way. Because the traffic in cities is often chaotic and unpredictable, it is for companies like Nissan enormous challenge to develop technology that a car safely through the city to run. NASA hopes that the technology of Nissan can be used to give robot carts on distant planets more autonomy.
