Las Vegas : In a bid to create a roadmap for the technology and business evolution of the automotive industry, Nissan has announced a fresh agreement with NASA. The US space agency’s Ames Research Centre in California’s Silicon Valley and Nissan will collaborate on research and technology development for future autonomous mobility services, including a working demonstration in Silicon Valley, reports IANS.

Researchers from the Nissan Research Centre in Silicon Valley and NASA Ames have been working together to advance autonomous vehicle (AV) systems. In January last year, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nissan introduced Nissan Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM), a new platform for managing fleets of autonomous vehicles, developed from NASA technology. “We built SAM from technology NASA developed for managing interplanetary rovers as they move around unpredictable landscapes,” said Maarten Sierhuis, director of the Nissan Research Centre in Silicon Valley.  “The final stage of our existing research agreement with NASA will bring us closer to that goal and test SAM in a working demonstration on public streets,” he added. The research collaboration  consists of three workstreams, namely autonomous drive, electrification and infrastructure technologies.
