Nissan Distance Control Assist System
A safer way to deal with heavy traffic

APN, 16th March 2006.

Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., has just announced yesterday the development of what it calls the "Distance Control Assist System", an electronic system that helps drivers control the distance between themselves and the vehicle in front.

The new system is especially useful in heavy traffic when frequent braking is required.

The system is able to determine the following distance of the driver, as well as the relative speed of both cars, using a radar sensor installed in the front bumper.

Left: Example of a car coming too close to a preceding vehicle. If the driver releases the accelerator pedal, the system automatically applies the brakes.
Right: Example in which deceleration by a preceding vehicle requires the driver to brake. An indicator will appear on the instrument panel and a buzzer will sound simultaneously. The accelerator pedal will then automatically move up.

If the driver releases the accelerator pedal or is not pressing it, the system automatically applies the brakes.1

If the system determines that braking is required, an indicator will appear on the instrument panel and a buzzer will sound simultaneously. The accelerator pedal will then automatically move upwards to assist the driver in switching to the brakes.

The Distance Control Assist System is the latest innovation developed under Nissan’s Safety Shield2 concept, and accident prevention and management approach based on the idea of "vehicles that help protect people".

1 The system applies the brakes only when the driver is not pressing the accelerator pedal.
2 Safety Shield: Through this concept introduced in 2004, Nissan aims to help create a safe motorised society in which there are no traffic accidents. The company is continuously working to design and engineer safer vehicles and has set a goal of halving by 2015 the number of fatal and serious injuries involving Nissan vehicles as compared to the 1995 level.
