Nissan plans to combine its Intelligent Mobility vision with DeNA's experience in developing and operating driverless mobility services for the development of new Easy Ride brand.
Nissan said on Tuesday, December 5 that it plans to start testing an "Easy Ride" self-driving taxi service on public roads in Yokohama, Japan in March, 2018, with members of the public offered free rides between destinations around the city.
Called Easy Ride, the vehicles will work alongside a mobile app that enables users to hail one of the cars as and when they need one.
The project combines Nissan's Intelligent Mobility technology, which ensures the robot vehicle navigates roads safely, with DeNA's experience in developing and operating self-driving mobility services using its experience in artificial intelligence and the internet.
The automaker has been working with local internet and software company DeNA since January this year to develop its driverless technology, which is fitted to modified models of Nissan's Leaf electric auto.
In Japan, Nissan and DeNA will face competition from Japanese robotics maker ZMP Inc, which is working with a Tokyo taxi operator to develop a self-driving taxi service it hopes to have up and running during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The only thing the passenger needs to do is to select a destination. Nissan said through such a new rental taxi mode, the city's public transport infrastructure will be greatly expanded, Easy Ride will effectively enhance the interaction between cities. Honda also has plans to launch a self-driving vehicle. Google's Waymo driverless auto completed its test in Arizona this year. Nissan's test is nothing new. It's noteworthy here, though, that the two companies have actually been performing field testing of their "Easy Ride" system since earlier this year.
