Nissan says it will have self-driving cars ready for 2020

Nissan says it will have self-driving cars ready for 2020

Nissan Motor Co. today said it intends to have multiple  self-driving vehicles ready for retail sale in 2020.

The assertion shows the Japanese automaker pushing ahead on a promising new  technology. But the sale of self-driving vehicles could be derailed by federal  traffic safety regulators.

Nissan has been working on self-driving vehicles for years at its Japanese  r&d centers, and now plans to step up its investment in the technology,  including a new proving ground dedicated to autonomous vehicles.

The company also recently opened an advanced technology center in  California's Silicon Valley that is working on autonomous vehicles.

Other automakers also are working on self-driving vehicles, which would allow  drivers to take their hands and eyes off the road and rely on technology to  safely guide the vehicles.

But many proponents say that significant hurdles -- including federal safety  regulations -- remain before the vehicles can go to market.
