Nissan BR23C – R2D2 for Cars
Just as theÂ Skywalker menfolk had the ever faithful and trustyÂ R2-D2Â as co-pilot you could be enjoying the company of a similar sidekick if Nissan get their way,
The droid in question is Nissan’s BR23CÂ and it’s planned that a similar robot could take charge of your car.
Mind you, it wont beÂ steering the wheelÂ and shifting gears but would be driving the car by chatting with it.
For now the BR23C is more of an entertainment robot, all it can do is recognise people’s feet and follow them – but hey, we all start someplace!
Nissan is working towards the ‘next generation transportation system’ which would be a zero accident zone as robots would be doing the driving.
Watch them in action below!
