Nissan is well on its way to offering vehicles with fully autonomous driving technology. By 2020, you should be able to purchase a Nissan that essentially does the driving for you.
Like anything, the road to this destination takes steps. Two of those steps were the development of Moving Object Detection and Around View Monitor. These are separate but complementary technologies that, as part of a larger complex of technologies, will allow for true driving autonomy in the future.
Around View Monitor gathers a composite picture of the vehicle’s surroundings and sends it to the driver in real time using four exterior cameras.
Moving Object Detection works with the Around View Monitor technology. MOD analyzes the feed coming from AVM and determines whether there are any moving objects around the vehicle. If so, it can issue audio and visual alerts to the driver.
Nissan has recently licensed these Nissan safety technologies to Hitachi Construction Machinery, which will create revenue that Nissan can further invest in better safety technologies.
Nissan is committed to safety. Visit 171 Nissan and we can show how this commitment has led to some of the safest vehicles on the road today!
