In January 2017, both companies have collaborated to develop a new mobility based on an autonomous driving technology.

Easy Ride is a robo-vehicle for customers who intend to travel freely to their destination.

The duo, which have been conducting field tests of their "Easy Ride" system since joining hands earlier this year, said the tests were the first step towards their goal of launching a full-service, self-driving ride-sharing service in the country in the early 2020s. It is set for a public field test in the Minatomirai district of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan between 5 March and 18 March 2018.

Under their plan, customers can use a mobile app to call the robo-vehicle, set the required destination and pay the fare.

Customers can also select recommended local destinations and sightseeing routes depending on their objectives. Only time will tell whether there is any genuine cause for alarm in these trials, but Easy Ride will be monitored remotely, and support multiple languages for tourists in an effort to keep every user safe.

Nissan said a driver will sit behind the steering wheel during the test, though the vehicles will handle the driving mostly by themselves. The companies will recruit participants for the March field test until 15 January through the Easy Ride website.
