Nissan presents its latest safety innovations

Article by Christian A., on October 15, 2011

Just like any other big car manufacturer, Nissan is working hard on safety technologies in order to make its vehicles safer and keep customers satisfied. Today, the Japanese manufacturer revealed its latest safety features: Acceleration Suppression for Pedal Misapplication, Multi-Sensing System with Rear Camera and Predictive Forward Collision Warning System.

The first system - Acceleration Suppression for Pedal Misapplication – works in car parks or other confined areas and is capable to help drivers who have a moment of confusion and press the accelerator instead of the brake or pressing on the accelerator too hard.

Apparently, the system can recognize if the car is on a road or in a car park by using image signal data acquired by the Around View Monitor’s four unit cameras.

Moreover, the system can also detect obstacles and automatically activates the brake in order to avoid a collision. The Multi-Sensing System with Rear Camera can detect people, other vehicles and road conditions in the rear and sides of the vehicle, and can alert drivers of possible collision risk.

This system will be available on the new models from 2012 and has the following three functions: Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Moving Object Detection. The Predictive Forward Collision Warning System will help drivers prevent pileup accidents resulting from the deceleration of vehicles in front and out of view.

When the system determines that the car needs to decelerate it will warn the driver in advance with a buzzer, signal on display, and also by tightening the seat belt.
