Nissan to test their self-driving car service in Japan 2018

Nissan to test self-driving car service 'Easy Ride' in Japan before 2020 Olympics

Japan will see a self-driving car service by 2020, called 'Easy Ride' the service is powered by Nissan and a technology company DeNa. Nissan plan to have this service up and running in Yokohama by at least 2020, hoping for a completion of everything to pick-up and drop-off via mobile payment to having the option of taking the scenic route to your destination.

Nissan is most likely to have all of these problems worked out by 2020, as the Tokyo Olympics is set to be there I can see no reason why Nissan would pass up on the opportunity to promote their self-driving cars throughout this time. The cars that are set to be introduced to the city of Yokohama are Leaf EV's which have already had testing gone underway in the UK.
