Nissan-ProPilot-Self-Driving-Golf-Ball

Nissan’s new Skyline is equipped with various driving assistants, route-driving, high-precision map data and the ability to overtake, branch and take exits–a technology they called ProPilot 2.0. In order to show off what the technology is capable of, Nissan used it as the starting point to build… The ProPilot Golf Ball. Despite a pretty significant small print disclaimer–“Propilot 2.0 is not a device that operates automatically. The driver is always responsible for the surroundings and the movement of the vehicle, and is responsible for ensuring safe operation of the steering wheel, brakes and accelerator.”–the technology clearly shows the significantly off-course golf ball redirecting and driving itself right in to the hole. In other words, it actually works. We’re still not at the point that we’d trust it to take the wheel if the thing being driven was the size of a car, but it nothing else, it’s proof that the technology will one day exist.
