The NSC-2015 features 'Automated Valet Parking' technology, which saves time for drivers by finding a spot and returning to collect them.

Nissan introduced a new concept at CEATEC in Japan called the NSC-2015. The Leaf EV comes with new electronics for improved time management and security. ‘Automated Valet Parking’ technology in the vehicle connects to the driver’s smartphone, allowing them to maintain full control remotely. The NSC-2015 parks itself and then you can instruct it to return and pick you up later.

Another new feature is an all-around view camera, which can react to suspicious behavior and alert the driver, who can choose to set off an alarm. Toru Futami, expert leader for Nissan’s IT & ITS development department, said:

With 90% of accidents caused by human error, we aimed to make a machine that could reduce error to as close to zero as possible and prevent an accident before it happens. Another objective was to reduce time-loss, such as that spent on looking for parking. That can be about 10 minutes lost door-to-door, when all you need to do is get to the entrance.

The vehicle will be fully viable by 2015 and you can take a look at it in the video below:
