Nissan has achieved a lot already in developing new autonomous driving technologies, so the company was able to bring the testing on real streets some time ago. They are now testing their next generation autonomous drive prototype vehicles in Europe as well, starting with on-road real-life demonstrations in the east of London.

Public-road testing has already been taking place in Japan and the United States, using Nissan Leaf as the testing vehicle. It's been equipped with autonomous driving technologies that can be used at speeds of up to 80 kph and include the millimeter wave radar, laser scanners, cameras, high-speed computer chips, and a specialized HMI (Human Machine Interface).

Along with the first testing being conducted on London streets, Nissan arrived to Geneva with a new Nissan Qashqai, equipped with ProPILOT autonomous drive technology to enable single lane autonomous driving on motorways. ProPILOT already proved itself last year in Japan, when Nissan launched the Serena, its first model to be fitted with this new technology.

The same ProPILOT will also be a part of the new Nissan Leaf, which will be introduced in September and available end of this year (in the US at least), according to official tweets from the American representative of the brand.
