Nissan amps up the anti-collision technology, Autos Nissan

YOKOHAMA: Nissan has announced a new driver-assistance technology, which is currently in-development, that utilises highly accurate, real-time information about the vehicle’s surrounding environment to dramatically enhance collision avoidance.

At a Nissan facility here, a test vehicle was used to demonstrate how this technology can automatically perform collision-avoidance maneuvers.

Nissan’s “ground truth perception” technology fuses information from next-generation high- performance LIDAR, radar and cameras.

The technology can detect the shape and distance of objects, as well as the structure of the area surrounding the vehicle, in real time with a high degree of accuracy.

Utilising this information, it is possible for the vehicle to instantly analyze the current situation, judge and automatically perform required collision-avoidance operations.

This technology can also detect slowed traffic and road obstacles in the distance and execute lane changes accordingly.

Importantly, the technology can also provide increased support to drivers in areas where detailed map information is not available.

Nissan senior vice-president, leading global research and development, Takao Asami said the company has been the first to market a number of advanced driver assistance technologies.

“When we look at the future of autonomous driving, we believe that it is of utmost importance for owners to feel highly confident in the safety of their vehicle. We are confident that our in-development ground truth perception technology will make a significant contribution to owner confidence, reduced traffic accidents and autonomous driving in the future,” he said.

Nissan has partnered with cutting-edge companies to research and develop this technology and share know-how.

The next-generation LIDAR, a crucial element, is being integrated into Nissan’s system in collaboration with Luminar, utilising world-leading technologies.

In the area of advanced collision avoidance control it is critical to develop highly accurate verification technology in a digital environment.

To this end Nissan is teaming up with Applied Intuition, which has state-of-the-art simulation technology.
