The new cars are delivered at company’s plant with driverless towing system.

Nissan Motor Co have been successfully working on their intelligent Mobility vision. This has led them to produce the most famous EV of the world which is Leaf and now they are paving way towards autonomous and semi-autonomous car technology as well.

The company just shared details about its new towing technique that is deployed at its Oppama plant. Here the IVT system is working taking in consideration the Nissan Intelligent Integration system.

This system is using Nissan LEAF these days in order to automatically tow trolleys that are laden with new Nissan vehicles. The LEAF has the job to tow these vehicles from loading to unloading points on the plant.

The special thing about these LEAF is that, these cars are driverless and driven autonomously. Thus Nissan has started deploying its autonomous service at home with a pretty responsible job.

This shows that its autonomous cars have been developed to a great extent and the driver less technology is surely in final phases. It looks like soon we will be able to see these driver-less cars by Nissan on road.

The towing car that is used in the process is laden with sensors, cameras and radars to see the path in front and at its sides. The towing route is automatically altered on day to day basis depending upon the requirements of the points where the cars have to be delivered.

The system allows a number of driverless cars to operate on the plant. These cars come with a technology according to which these cars automatically stop if they detect any other towing car in the way. There is an emergency system as well which allows the vehicles to be removed manually from the site too.
