Nissan Leaf NSC2015 autonomous prototype unveiled at CEATEC image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the autonomous Leaf prototype, during the CEATEC Japan 2012.

According to the car manufacturer, the Nissan Leaf in question is an autonomous vehicle, which is coming with a remote monitoring system that can recognize the surrounding environment with an all-around view camera and the 4G mobile generation. The system is complicated but Nissan says that the driver can arrive at his destination, get out of the car and then tell it to park itself with a smartphone application. The model would then search for a parking space and automatically park itself there.

When the owner of the vehicle would be ready to go home, he will tell that to his ride with the help of the same smartphone application, and the car would meet him at the current location. Besides this, the onboard camera can act as a security system and inform the owner of any suspicious behavior when it’s parked. This technology can sound quite futuristic but the carmaker is saying that it will be viable by 2015.
