    With the level of information, it can gather, this technology can allow the equipped vehicle to instantly analyze the current situation, judge, and automatically perform required collision-avoidance operations.

    Nissan adds that this technology can also detect slowed traffic and road obstacles in the distance and execute lane changes accordingly. Furthermore, the technology Nissan is developing can also provide support to drivers who may be going to areas where detailed map information is not available.

    This driver-assist technology is a result of Nissan’s partnership with various cutting-edge companies such as Luminar, a global automotive company that is helping Nissan with next-generation LIDAR systems; and Applied Intuition, a company that helps Nissan develop highly accurate verification technology in a digital environment to simulate advanced collision avoidance control.

    “Nissan has been the first to market a number of advanced driver assistance technologies. When we look at the future of autonomous driving, we believe that it is of utmost importance for owners to feel highly confident in the safety of their vehicles. We are confident that our in-development ground truth perception technology will make a significant contribution to owner confidence, reduced traffic accidents, and autonomous driving in the future,” said Nissan’s Leading Global Research and Development Senior Vice President Takao Asami.
