Intelligent Driving: Nissan IDS Concept Car

Some have imagined a future with auto driving cars to living in a world of conveyor belts that simply take people from point A to B, but the Nissan IDS Concept conceptualizes a very different vision of tomorrow.  

The Nissan IDS concept was presented at the 2015 Tokyo auto show, being both an autonomous car and an electric vehicle.  IDS stands for Intelligent Driving System, and Nissan calls its autonomous-driving setup Piloted Drive, and says it will be rolled out in two phases.

Piloted Drive 1.0 will be for single-lane driving at sub-highway speeds. Piloted Drive 1.0 will be offered first in the Japanese market, starting in 2016, before coming to China, Europe, and the United States.  When the driver selects Piloted Drive and turns over driving to the vehicle, the car’s performance, accelerating to braking to cornering imitates the driver’s own style and preferences.

Piloted Drive 2.0 will add the ability to auto drive with highway speeds and maneuver multiple lanes, including merging and changing lanes. CEO Carlos Ghosn said that Nissan’s automated-driving technology would be available on multiple models worldwide by 2020.

In Manual Drive mode, the driver has control.  The linear acceleration and cornering are dreamy features, but the Nissan IDS Concept continues to provide assistance.  Sensors continually monitor conditions and assistance is available even while the driver is in control.  In the event of imminent danger, Nissan IDS Concept will assist the driver in taking evasive action.

In addition to learning, the Nissan IDS Concept’s AI communicates like an attentive partner.  Information concerning traffic conditions, scheduling the driver’s calendar to personal interests, Nissan IDS Concept’s AI has what is needed to help create a driving experience that is comfortable, enjoyable and safe.
