Yokohama : July 13 - Machine revealed the all-new 5th-generation Serena on Wednesday, slated to go on sale in Asia at the end of August, and ProPILOT, a revolutionary autonomous drive engineering designed for highway use in single-lane traffic.
The Serena was introduced to the market in 1991, as well as the all-new version takes a great evolutionary step forward with a rested, exciting look and a selection of new functions catering into a new generation of van users.
With ProPILOT, Machine is the first Japanese automaker to introduce a combination of steerage, accelerator and braking that may be operated in full automatic function, easing driver workload throughout highway traffic and very long commutes.
Employing advanced image-processing technology, ProPILOT understands highway and traffic situations in addition to executes precise steering, permitting the vehicle to perform naturally. As a result of a switch on the tyre, ProPILOT allows the motorist to easily activate and disconnect the system, offering a fit-to
-drive interface with a private display showing the functioning status.
The accelerator, tires and steering are manipulated based on information obtained by way of a mono camera equipped with advanced-image processing software. The ProPILOT camera can quickly recognize with three-dimensional depth both earlier vehicles and lane marker pens.
Once activated, ProPILOT immediately controls the distance between the car and the preceding vehicle, by using a speed preset by the drivers (between approximately 30 km/h and 100 km/h). The machine also keeps the car in the highway lane simply by reading lane markers as well as controlling steering, even by means of curves.
ProPILOT automatically can be applied the brakes to bring the automobile to a full stop. After halting, the vehicle will remain in place managing driver's foot is off the particular brake pedal. When all set to resume driving, ProPILOT will be activated when the driver details the switch again or perhaps lightly presses the gearbox.
Nissan is proactively attempting to make its corporate dreams of "Zero Emissions" and also "Zero Fatalities" a reality. Beneath "Nissan Intelligent Mobility", ProPILOT promotes safety and gives you confidence in drivers, and is also part of "Nissan Intelligent Driving".
ProPILOT will be introduced directly into other vehicles, including the Qashqai in Europe in 2017. There are also plans for the technological know-how to be introduced in the Ough. S. and China market segments. A multi-lane autonomous generating technology will enable programmed lane changes on tracks and is planned for launch in 2018, while independent driving on urban streets and in intersections is organized for launch in 2020.
