Autonomous Nissan Testing in London

Nissan is serious about its commitment to eventually creating a zero-emission, zero-fatality future, and part of that means developing self-driving vehicles. To that end, the company recently tested an autonomous Nissan vehicle on the real-world streets of London, revealing its new technology in full to the European media.

Nissan has conducted public testing in the US and Japan before in an effort to pursue self-driving technology in real life situations. Nissan allowed the public to participate by riding in an autonomous vehicle, which uses a wide array of technologies including wave radar, laser scanners, cameras, and a Human Machine Interface, plus many more, to sense vehicles around it and make decisions in seconds.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan’s program to improve mobility and autonomy around the world, combines three areas of innovation to produce fully autonomous, driverless vehicles: Nissan Intelligent Driving improves safety and control; Nissan Intelligent Power focuses on reducing emissions and improving fuel efficiency, including electric and hybrid technologies; and Nissan Intelligent Integration is all about connecting cars together, which will eventually lead to a smarter remote vehicle operation and more efficient driving.

Lake Charles Pit Bull Rescue

The Lake Charles Pit Bull Rescue is one of our nearest and dearest charities here at Nissan of Lake Charles. The organization is a nonprofit that rescues pit bulls (and other “pit bull-type” dogs) and adopts them out, because the local shelter and other area shelters won’t.

Rescue and adoption aren’t all Lake Charles Pit Bull Rescue does, though. They’re also involved in training their pit bulls as therapy dogs through the Positive Pit Project, which is especially active in providing therapy dogs to veterans. LCPBR works with Team Halo and Eylsa’s Purpose to fight animal cruelty cases as well.

The organization is extremely dedicated to their dogs and provides them with the best care possible. All dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and given all their shots. LCPBR even takes them for surgeries at the LSU Veterinary School of Medicine, which has included heart surgery, MRIs, and cancer treatment.

Support from Lake Charles Pit Bull Rescue doesn’t end when you adopt your dog. Part of the adoption fee goes to a training session with the organization’s trainer, and LCPBR is happy to continue helping after the adoption when needed.

The organization also helps the community by building fences and providing training workshops. At Nissan of Lake Charles, we’re glad to share a town with a group that does such incredible work.
