Franklin-based Nissan North America is teaming up with NASA to develop an autonomous vehicle.
In a joint announcement, Nissan and NASA officials say they will have prototypes ready to test by the end of the year. The work will be done at Nissan’s Silicon Valley research center and NASA’s Ames research center in California. The vehicles will be all-electric, driver-less, and able to carry payloads or people.
Nissan aims to have an autonomous vehicle for sale by 2020.
