Nissan plans to introduce new collision avoidance technologies by 2030


Nissan said Monday that new Nissan models will be equipped with driver-assistance technology by 2030 that uses real-time information about the vehicle’s surroundings to greatly enhance collision avoidance.

The Japanese automaker expects to complete development of the new technology, which employs sensors to accurately detect the shape and distance of objects and automatically performs operations to avoid collisions even in complex emergency situations, by the mid-2020s.

It was revealed during an online briefing that one demonstration video showed an automated car stopping abruptly in front of an oncoming vehicle to avoid a collision that was on the verge of happening.

“We believe that current driving-assistance technology can cover about 30 percent of all possible accident scenarios. I believe we can reach well over ninety percent of the population using this automated emergency technology, “said Takao Asami, senior vice president of the company.

According to Nissan, the technology allows a vehicle to detect obstacles up to 300 metres away by combining information from a high-performance Lidar sensor with information from cameras and radar, as well as perform emergency manoeuvres such as changing lanes.

Automakers are racing to develop vehicles with assistance and self-driving technology that can avoid collisions, and the competition is fierce.

Honda Motor Co., Nissan’s main domestic competitor, is working on integrating artificial intelligence into its vehicles to alert drivers to impending traffic hazards and help them avoid accidents caused by human error by the second half of the 2020s.
