Car manufacturer Nissan recently confirmed is plans to bring Europe’s first real-word self-driving car trials to the streets of London by next month.

The car will be a modified version of the Nissan Leaf, a small, electric vehicle.

Building on the technology that has already been trialed on large, open roads such as motorways, Nissan suggested its new driverless cars will be able to manage “a diverse city environment.”

This will mark the first time such tests have been held in Europe, with the United States and Asia so far dominating the driverless car scene.
