Nissan further enhances safety shield capabilities with new technologies

Unveils two key technologies; advanced sensors to monitor surroundings 360 degrees around car, and advanced artificial intelligence
Innovations enable car to handle complex real-world driving situations, demonstrated for the first time
Combined with existing innovations the features extend the capability of Nissan’s Safety Shield
Breakthroughs born out of Nissan Motors’ research towards eventually eliminating fatalities in accidents involving its vehicles, and achieving autonomous driving

Nissan Motor Co. Ltd., has solidified its position as a leading innovator in safety technology by demonstrating two key new breakthroughs for the first time.

The innovations are being showcased on board Nissan LEAF vehicles, combining the company’s commitment to pursue sustainable mobility through zero emissions with its goal of a world with virtually no traffic accidents leading to death or serious injury. The new technology is also a step towards achieving autonomous driving.

The first innovation is advanced sensors. Laser scanners and Around View Monitor cameras monitor the surroundings of the vehicle in a full 360 degree circle, continually looking for obstacles, other vehicles and potential risks, as well as road signs and signals.

The second breakthrough is in the area of vehicle intelligence which enables the car to react to the data the advanced sensors collect.

Together the innovations enable the car to handle complex real-world road situations. Three new scenarios are being demonstrated at Nissan 360 for the first time:

– Autonomous side distance control
– Intersection entry and turning with oncoming traffic monitor
– Overtaking with oncoming traffic monitor

Side distance control is used on the highway. It enables the car to recognize when the lane is closed due to obstacles narrowing the travel path, and steer to avoid a collision. Such a situation might occur in the real world when lanes on a highway are closed for road works.

Intersection entry/turn with oncoming traffic monitor is an application for city driving. The Nissan LEAFs at the N360 event are capable of passing through a junction while avoiding oncoming traffic.
