Nissan will demonstrate their “All-Around Collision Free” prototype vehicle, with two all-new crash avoidance technologies, at the 15th World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in New York this week.
The AACF concept vehicle features a series of warning systems and sensors including a lane departure warning system that Nissan calls Lane Departure Prevention (LDP). LDP monitors the markings on the road surface and uses dynamic braking to motivate the vehicle back to its original lane if the line is inadvertently crossed.
Back-up Collision Prevention (BCP) and Side Collision Prevention (SCP) will also be showcased. Both systems use sensors to add security in reversing and lane-change maneuvers, respectively. Distance Control Assist (DCA) can warn drivers if they’re at a risk of hitting another object.
Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communication systems will also be shown, warning motorists of potentially unseen traffic near intersections, or alerting the driver if they’re about to pass through a red light.
The red light alarm is activated when the vehicle is approaching an intersection with a red light without decelerating appropriately. If the vehicle does not decelerate as it approaches a red light, it will be automatically stopped behind the stop line by the infrastructure-based cooperative intelligent cruise control.
