Nissan's novelties at the 2005 Tokyo motor show

APN, 15th October 2005.

Telematics and ITS Nissan aims to use telematics and intelligent transport system (ITS) technologies to make driving safer, more comfortable and easier on the environment.

Future enhancements of Nissan’s CARWINGS telematics services will make driving more convenient and comfortable. New human-machine interfaces (HMI) will make driving safer and easier in all conditions. Technologies under development will facilitate collaborative interaction between vehicles and road traffic systems.

CARWINGS provides a host of helpful services such as fastest route calculations based on statistical traffic data, real-time traffic updates, weather reports and news. The system supports e-mail notification of the driver’s present location, live operator assistance for destination searches and navigation system questions and emergency roadside assistance services, among other services. The current CARWINGS system also provides seamless communication through the use of a Bluetooth(R) -enabled mobile phone. (Bluetooth is a registered trademark of Bluetooth SIG,Inc.USA.).

A dash-mounted infrared (IR) commander allows drivers to operate the navigation system and audio system without taking an eye off the road or fumbling around for controls (see Pivo concept car).

Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI) Advanced human-machine interfaces have potential to make driving safer, easier and more pleasurable. Nissan’s recent efforts have centered on putting relevant information within the driver’s line of sight and correctly positioned for optimum visibility. Control switches are ergonomically positioned near the driver for easier operation. While continuing these innovative measures, Nissan is working to advance HMI technologies further to achieve user interfaces that can easily be understood at a glance and are simple to operate even while driving.
Nissan's near-future HMI concepts are featured in the Foria and the Amenio, while ideas envisioned for possible application further into the future are incorporated in the Pivo.


Kanagawa ITS Technology Project [SKY PROJECT] In the second half of 2006, Nissan plans to launch a project in Kanagawa Prefecture (near Tokyo) that will use intelligent transport system (ITS) technologies to reduce both traffic accidents and congestion. Based on the results of this initiative, Nissan aims to move toward commercial applications by the end of 2007.

The project will focus on three systems:
•Road-vehicle communication technology to warn drivers of accident risks at intersections.
•Warning systems to advise drivers to reduce speed in school zones and other high-risk areas.
•Dynamic route guidance using real-time traffic volume data to reduce traffic congestion and provide fastest route guidance.

One CARWINGS service, already available in Japan, helps drivers avoid congestion using both historical and real-time traffic data from the Vehicle Information and Communication System (VICS).

The Kanagawa project will go several steps further by accessing real-time data from the vehicle’s immediate vicinity, such as through roadside sensors.

Partners in the project include NTT DoCoMo Inc., Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. and Xanavi Informatics Corporation.

Road infrastructure data resources will be developed in collaboration with member companies of the Universal Traffic Management Society (UTMS) of Japan and the cooperation of the National Police Agency and the Kanagawa Prefectural Police Headquarters.
