Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY) is stepping up its automated driving offerings, and intends to deliver cars that park themselves and autonomously navigate congested highways by 2016. By 2018 the company expects to introduce cars that can change lanes automatically, ending in its 2020 finale of fully automatic vehicles.

"You need to be first with very significant features," says CEO Carlos Ghosn. "There’s always a premium with those who come first."
