Nissan BR23C robot the closest thing to R2D2 for now

by Dhiram Shah

Anakin Skywalker had the R2D2 on his X-Wing fighter for assistance, soon you could have the Nissan BR23C in your car driving you around. Yes that is the ultimate dream. A robot driving the car with passengers inside. It wont be handling the steering and shifting gears but would be driving the car by communicating with it. For now the BR23C is more of an entertainment robot, all it can do is recognize people’s feet and follow them. Nissan is working towards the ‘next generation transportation system’ which would be a zero accident zone as robots would be doing the driving.
