New driver-assistance technology dramatically improves collision-avoidance performance
Nissan develops automated collision-avoidance system, a fundamental technology for reducing traffic accidents and autonomous driving
Nissan believes that in the future era of automated driving, driver-assistance technology that can avoid the highly complex accidents that occur in the real world will be essential to ensure customer peace of mind.
Nissan develops an advanced driver-assistance technology that dramatically enhances collision-avoidance performance with the ground truth perception technology.
How technology works
Instantaneous decision and maneuver with real-time precise recognition of surroundings
Emergency maneuvers in complex situations
Moreover, it can avoid collision with flying object by precise 3D space recognition
Unique algorithm development
Nissan's unique perception and vehicle-control algorithm enables instantaneous recognition and decision
Ground truth perception technology
Ground truth perception is precise 3D perception of the vehicle’s surroundings by fusion of next-generation LiDAR, camera and radar. Especially, significantly improved ranging, field of view and resolution of the LiDAR allows full performance utilization.
1. Next-generation LiDAR
Precisely reproduces space and objects like 3D printer
Recognize scene context – vehicle category, road structure, traffic sign, character
Recognizes motion (distance, speed) of surrounding objects
ProPILOT: Concept Zero test vehicle
- April 2022: Nissan revealed its latest test vehicle with ground truth perception technology, demonstrating how the car can automatically perform collision-avoidance maneuvers.
- Jun 2023: Nissan added intersection collision avoidance capability, showcasing the technology's ability in the more complex environments.
Accidents caused by driver error at intersections can unfortunately result in significant consequences. The in-development system is therefore being designed to provide improved assistance in difficult situations through advanced sensing and decision-making capabilities.
