Renault-Nissan Alliance has revealed its intention to launch more than 10 vehicles with autonomous drive technology over the next four years.

The automaker noted that fatal and serious injuries have been significantly reduced during recent years, and said that new technologies will help to make cars even safer.

The firm will introduce autonomous models to the United States, Europe, Japan, and China between now and 2020. It has revealed no plans to bring driverless technology to the Middle East.

Commenting on the four-year strategy, Carlos Ghosn, chairman and CEO of Renault-Nissan Alliance, said: “Renault-Nissan Alliance is deeply committed to the twin goals of ‘zero emissions and zero fatalities’. That’s why we are developing autonomous driving and connectivity for mass-market, mainstream vehicles on three continents.”

This year will see the debut of Nissan-Renault Alliance’s ‘single-lane control’ system, a feature that allows cars to drive autonomously on highways.

In 2018, the firm will introduce its ‘multiple-lane control’ feature, which can autonomously negotiate hazards and change lines during highway driving.

The company’s ‘intersection autonomy’ technology will be introduced in 2020, and will enable the navigation of city intersections and heavy urban traffic without driver intervention.

Renault-Nissan Alliance will also release a suite of connectivity applications to allow car owners to stay connected to work, entertainment, and social networks.
