For drivers who who have problems parking, Nissan has prototyped an egg-shaped car whose body pivots 360 degrees so that its rear end becomes the front.
The three-seater electric car, called Pivo, has steering, wheels and other parts controlled electronically by wireless, or electronic signals, not mechanical links between the cabin and the vehicle’s chassis.
Pivo highlights other technologies, including a system that allows the driver to control devices inside the car simply by raising his or her fingers off the steering wheel.
That’s done through a camera embedded in the steering wheel that senses heat. Lifting one finger might turn on the radio. Two fingers might set car navigation equipment.
