Easy Ride is envisioned as a mobility service for anyone who wants to travel freely to their destination of choice in a robo-vehicle.
Nissan and DeNA will begin a field test of Easy Ride, the robo-vehicle mobility service being developed by both companies from March in Yokohama, Japan.
The field test will enable Nissan and DeNA to learn from the experience of operating the Easy Ride service trial with public participation, as both companies look toward future commercial endeavors.
Nissan and DeNA will also work to develop service designs for driverless environments, expanded service routes, vehicle distribution
logic, pick-up/drop-off processes and multilingual support. The companies aim to launch Easy Ride in a limited environment at first, and then introduce a full service in the early 2020s.
With customers able to discover new local destinations, the companies expect Easy Ride will also help energize cities and neighborhoods.
