Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

In his latest LinkedIn Influencer post, Renault-Nissan Alliance CEO #carlosghosn describes what it's like to "drive" an autonomous drive car – in this case, an advanced prototype #infiniti #q50 sedan capable of handling complex city driving. Read all of Ghosn's LinkedIn posts here.

Today, I experienced the unusual, thrilling sensation of riding in the driver's seat of an autonomous-drive car as it navigated the streets of Sunnyvale in California's Silicon Valley.

The car is an advanced prototype #infiniti #q50 sedan capable of handling complex city driving. It has a special California registration for autonomous drive vehicles, and I had to receive a special state license to operate it hands-free.

What struck me was how quickly I grew comfortable as the car smoothly and safely negotiated the suburban streets, including intersections and dense traffic. Accompanied by an engineer, we simply set the destination, put the car in autonomous drive mode, and off we went – safely, without a hitch.
