JAPAN: Nissan shows 'collision free' prototype
Nissan Motor has shown off an all-around collision free prototype incorporating two new technologies - side collision prevention (SCP) and back-up collision prevention (BCP).
Incorporating distance control assist (DCA) and lane departure prevention (LDP) systems, this latest prototype vehicle, shown at a technology seminar in Japan, further extends the automaker's 'Safety Shield' concept to help protect the vehicle and its occupants from potential risks coming from multiple directions.
DCA helps maintain an adequate following distance, while LDP helps to prevent the vehicle from veering off its designated driving lane. Both the DCA and LDP systems complement the SCP and BCP to create the prototype, Nissan said.
The warning system and pre-emptive safety features are designed to help support the driver in an intuitive manner with minimal intervention.
