It is set for a public field test in the Minatomirai district of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan between 5 March and 18 March 2018.
Japan will see a self-driving vehicle service by 2020, called "Easy Ride" the service is powered by Nissan and a technology company DeNa. The auto giant and Japanese mobile game company DeNA have jointly developed the new driverless vehicle services, dubbed Easy Ride.
Nissan and DeNA said they would hold public tests over a two-week period in Yokohama in March, under which riders can use an app developed by DeNA to summon self-driving versions of Nissan's Leaf electric cars to travel to pre-mapped destinations and pay fares.
