Nissan has just announced the new generation of driving assistance systems, or ADAS, whose development is still ongoing, but which the Japanese brand believes it can start marketing, initially only on some models, from 2025. Most likely, already after the presentation of the future 100% electric crossover, which will succeed the Leaf, and which the manufacturer used for this video…
Presented as a package of technologies capable of helping to further reduce traffic accidents, this new set of advanced driving assistance systems, or ADAS, should, however, see its development fully completed, only in the middle of this decade. Which will mean that this new generation of ADAS will only be truly available, across the entire Nissan range, until later in 2030, advances Carscoops.
However, Nissan already highlights the “truth perception on the ground” system, capable of creating a detailed and highly accurate 3D model of the surrounding objects and landscape, namely, combining the latest generation LIDAR technology, with various sensors. of radar and cameras mounted on the outside of the vehicle.
With this system, in which Nissan has partnered with Luminar for LIDAR, while in the simulation technology it had the help of Applied Intuition, Nissan believes it can guarantee collision avoidance in more complex scenarios, in which identification is not enough. vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. Since, in order to achieve this, the Japanese brand shows images of a Nissan Skyline equipped with these sensors that, during its route, manages to successfully avoid an out of control wheel, a fictitious pedestrian and another vehicle in reverse, without driver intervention.

In addition to this type of situation, the intelligent software also shows signs of being able to identify traffic congestion or obstacles on the road, even managing to change lanes accordingly, if the driver does not do so.
Among the various types of situations or accidents, with a greater degree of complexity, that Nissan shows this new ADAS to be able to overcome, there is the case of a pickup with a trailer blocking the lane, a saloon hitting a truck and the twirling down the road, and a large object flying from the other lane towards the Nissan’s windshield. The Japanese manufacturer guarantees that, in this type of situation, the new system is able to “immediately analyze the situation, decide and automatically execute the necessary operations to avoid the collision”. This, in addition to being extremely useful, also in situations where the information on the map is not conveniently detailed or even available.

Finally, and serving as a protagonist in many of the illustrations that served as an example and proof of the effectiveness of the new ADAS, the next 100% electric crossover that Nissan started to announce in 2021, but which, if we are to believe in these images, it still hasn’t passed. of a concept. This, despite the manufacturer having already announced that the model will be produced in the United Kingdom, but marketed worldwide, and that it will use the same CMF-EV architecture as the Nissan Ariya and Renault Megane E-Tech.
But if, in the case of this new proposal, it is expected that it will appear on the market within a short time, not least because the model it replaces, the Leaf, already has a long life, as far as the new ADAS is concerned, the forecasts are that their introduction starts, in some pre-selected proposals, from 2025 onwards. With dissemination across the entire range taking place only around 2030.
