Nissan have unveiled an All-Around Collision Free prototype with two all-new technologies: Side Collision Prevention (SCP) and Back-up Collision Prevention (BCP).
Incorporating the available Distance Control Assist (DCA) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) systems, this latest prototype vehicle further extends Nissan’s “Safety Shield” to activate automated braking when needed to avoid a crash.
The Distant Control Assist (DCA) helps maintain an adequate following distance, while the Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) helps to prevent the vehicle from veering off its intended driving lane. Both the DCA and LDP systems complement the SCP and BCP to create the All-Around Collision Free prototype. The warning system and pre-emptive safety features are designed to help support the driver in an intuitive manner with minimal intervention.
Side Collision Prevention: When the driver decides to change lanes, the side-mounted sensors activates a warning if an approaching vehicle is detected in the driver’s intended lane. A yaw mechanism is then activated through brake control of individual wheels, to help prevent a potential collision.

Back-up Collision Prevention: During a reversing manœuvre, rear and side-mounted sensors scan for objects in the path of the vehicle. If an object is detected, an alarm sounds followed by the activation of the brakes, to help avoid a collision in situations such as when a vehicle is backing out of a parking space.
