Nissan plans to begin rolling out significant automated driving features in 2016 as a step toward offering vehicles with "comprehensive autonomous drive capabilities" by 2020, the automaker has announced.

The automaker is leveraging its role in the Renault-Nissan Alliance to develop its "traffic jam pilot" technology for 2016 that will allow vehicles to drive autonomously and more safely on congested highways.

In 2018, Nissan plans to introduce a new technology that allows a car to autonomously negotiate hazards and change lanes.

By 2020, Nissan hopes to offer technology that enables a car to navigate on its own in nearly all situations, including complex city driving, according to Nissan.

Nissan provided the update as part of its Sustainability Report 2015. To read the full report, click here.
