2014 Note features Nissan Safety Shield system

Article by Christian A., on July 8, 2013

The new Nissan Note marks the carmaker’s commitment to create innovative technology that makes like easier and safer for drivers. At the launch event of the new Nissan Note, the carmaker allowed journalists to experience Nissan Safety Shield, which is a network of three safety features providing drivers with outstanding visibility and protection.

The Nissan Safety Shield’s Blind Spot Warning feature gives warnings to the driver on a vehicle in either blind spot at the at the rear of the Note. Once a vehicle is detected, the system will illuminate a warning light in the glass of the Note's wing mirror. It also provides light and audible warnings when it detects a vehicle in the danger area if the driver indicates changing lanes.

The Lane Departure Warning feature detects road markings, allowing the Note to determine whether it is drifting out of position without indicating.

If it determines that the vehicle is drifting out of position, the system will provide a warning to the driver to correct their road position. The Moving Object Detection feature provides audible and visual warning if someone or something is moving behind the car.

All three elements of the Nissan Safety Shield work by using data received from a single wide-angle rear-view camera, unlike other systems that depend on several cameras and radar systems to monitor movements around the car.

Nissan developed a distinct ‘wash and blow dry' intelligent cleaning system that employs water and jet of compressed air to keep the camera’s lens clean. Images are displayed on the 5.8-inch NissanConnect screen.

Nissan’s new Note brings excitement and design flair to a segment that considers style as a very essential ingredient for success. In order to meet consumers’ increasing high demands in the B-segment, the carmaker has come up with a vehicle that blends elegant and fluid lines with bold details.

The new Nissan Note took inspiration from Nissan’s acclaimed Invitation concept car, which was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012. The new Note boasts an energetic design that’s functional yet stylish at the same time.

What’s more, the silhouette’s clean lines hint at Note’s dynamic potential, as well as showcase its class-leading aerodynamics. The new Note’s European model, unlike versions sold in other markets, features a unique design for its front as well as sculpted wing mirrors that incorporate indicator repeaters.

Furthermore, the new Note was built on the brand’s lightweight V platform, combining short overhangs and a long wheelbase in order to create a sporty and agile look. Additionally, the car’s sides are distinguished by its dramatic 'Squash Line,' which lend a powerful dynamism to its profile. The Squash Line is named so because the angles have been inspired by a squash ball flying fast around a court.

Moreover, the new Note’s front combines sculpted surfaces with an interlocking grille and headlamp arrangement. These, together with the car’s flared wheel arches as well as a distinctive and flowing window line, further reinforce Nissan's position as a leader in vehicle design.
