Car manufacturer Nissan is putting its autonomous cars where its mouth is…wait, that would really hurt…OK, let’s put it this way: the Japanese car company is making a bold promise of selling self-driving cars by 2020.
Actually, Nissan says it’ll be selling multiple self-driving models at what the company refers to as ‘realistic prices for consumers’. It doesn’t specify which comsumers it’s talking about, so that’s an automatic (or should that be automated) get out of jail free card right there.
Self-driving cars use various technologies to constantly monitor their surroundings in order to guide themselves. Basically, this means that they can react to potential dangerous situations without the need for human intervention. As computers are faster than your fingers, the idea is that this will mean fewer accidents on the roads.
