As record starts to tackle a difficult charge of driving, today’s motorist will initial knowledge systems aiding them, such as Nissan ProPILOT Assist, while they sojourn in full control.

“With continued advances in sensor and estimate technology, some-more of a pushing charge will eventually be means to send from a motorist to a complement and eventually concede a motorist to do something other than expostulate a vehicle,” pronounced Christensen.

Woodard pronounced hosting a eventuality was critical to “showcasing a proceed to unconstrained vehicles and care in how we are going about courteous rollout of these technologies.”

And as lawmakers, regulators and states fastener to know a opportunities, challenges, realities, misconceptions, benefaction and destiny of unconstrained vehicles, Woodard pronounced Nissan wants to assistance keep a review relocating forward.

“Bringing a experts to Washington shows a eagerness to rivet on these topics with a groups and decision-makers who attended,” pronounced Woodard.

Among those attending Nissan’s informational eventuality were members of a U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and a Tennessee Department of Transportation.
