Nissan to continue road tests for its self-driving cars

Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. will not change the road tests for its autonomous vehicles, The Associated Press reported, citing Chief Planning Officer Philippe Klein.

Klein said that the company has ensured the safety of its tests, which involves specially trained drivers that can "take over the car," according to an AP report March 23.

Nissan has been conducting tests for its self-driving vehicles in London, Tokyo and California, the report added. It intends to incorporate autonomous driving technology in 20 of its car models in 20 markets by fiscal 2022.

The safety concern comes after an incident where Uber Technologies Inc.'s self-driving car testing resulted in the death of a woman in Arizona.

Uber consequently stopped all of its tests in San Francisco, Phoenix, Pittsburgh and Toronto, Bloomberg News reported March 19. The company is now under investigation.

Meanwhile, Toyota Motor Corp. — which is in talks to purchase Uber's self-driving technology — halted the testing of its autonomous vehicles in the U.S., according to a separate Bloomberg report March 20. Toyota spokesman Brian Lyons reportedly explained that the accident may have had an "emotional effect" on its test drivers.
