It also wants to research Human Machine Interface for both technologies
Nissan has opened a new research center in Silicon Valley, where the automaker plans to focus on autonomous and connected vehicles.
The new facility is called the Nissan Research Center Silicon Valley (NRC-SV), and it will use partnerships with educational institutions and companies to work on projects for new vehicle technologies.
The initial projects in NRC-SV will be research of autonomous vehicles, research of connected vehicles that can use the Internet and infrastructure to communicate with the outside world, and research of Human Machine Interface to make both autonomous and connected vehicles more efficient.
“As we continue to expand our R&D capabilities throughout the world, we aggressively pursue our activities to create new values of mobility, by harnessing the latest information and communication technologies here in our new research center in Silicon Valley," said Nissan Executive Vice President supervising Research and Development Mitsuhiko Yamashita.
There were hints of Nissan's autonomous future back in October 2012, when the automaker announced that it would
use steer-by-wire technology
for future Infiniti models.

When I say free market principles I mean that price needs to be set as high as the market will bear without a false cieling restricting it because it's a "right" or some such nonsense. A road is a scarce resource that should be priced high enough as to not overload its use. The high price allows funds to be allocated to the expansion and construction of more roads where the demand desires them.
There is a significant number of people that want price and cost to be the same thing. They aren't and shouldn't be. Price communicates demand such that those able to supply have some motivation to commit the effort to do so. Cost must be some measurable difference less than price. Profit is the difference between the two that provides the incentives that allow those with abilities and assets to expend them for the betterment of the world.
Concerning free markets in general, I say they are more common than most people realize. Who regulates Craigslist? Do you pay sales tax on used goods or something you buy from your buddy? Does the government stop you from trading a television for a gun because you didn't do it through the proper channels? Do you trade your time (cost to you) for a wage (price of your time) and make a profit? Most unhappy workers are the ones that feel they the trade doesn't have a high enough profit margin.
Nobody governs an ecosystem; its constraints are natural. I wish people would use the term "Natural Market" instead of "Free Market" as that would lend realization that the true natural laws of economics are as immutable as the true natural laws of physics. The only markets that have problems are the markets that aren't free.
Roads run by a government without prices and costs being determined by a free market make them more expensive and/or less useful than they could otherwise be.
