Nissan says it's on track to release a self-driving car by 2020.
The company's CEO says the Japanese carmaker will introduce a self-parking car by 2016, a lane changing vehicle in 2018 and a car that can maneuver intersections on its own two years later.
Nissan along with Toyota and Daimler along with technology companies such as Google have accelerated research into systems that can make driving partly or fully automatic.  
Potential benefits include reducing traffic accidents and congestion and allowing people to use the time in transit for activities other than driving.
