NASA and Nissan Partner to Develop Driverless Vehicles for Earth and Space



Wired has a report on Nissan and NASA’s partnership to develop unmanned vehicles:
“The automaker and the space agency announced a five-year partnership that will see their engineers working together to develop the robo-cars of tomorrow. The R&D effort, much of which will occur in Silicon Valley, could yield technology that will be put to use in passenger vehicles here on Earth and rovers on distant planets.

Nissan and NASA will develop and test zero-emission autonomous cars (modified electric Nissan Leafs, naturally) at NASA’s Ames Research Center, which is just up the road from Nissan’s Silicon Valley research center in Sunnyvale, California.”
