Nissan shows off technologies at CES Asia 2019

June 18,2019

THE CES Asia 2019, held in Shanghai on June 11-13, allowed Nissan Motor a venue in which to present its “vision for the future of mobility.”

The carmaker at the event demonstrated technologies that access brain waves, and which merge the real and virtual worlds to assist drivers.

Shown were the company’s Invisible-to-Visible (I2V) and Brain-to-Vehicle (B2V) systems, as well as the Nissan IMs, a fully electric, all-wheel drive concept car.

Nissan explained I2V can help drivers “see the invisible,” like objects around a corner or behind a building. The system combines information from sensors inside and outside the car with data from the cloud. It also uses several other technologies like ProPILOT (which delivers information about the environment around the vehicle), Omni-Sensing (real-time traffic data) and Seamless Autonomous Mobility (real-time data on road environment).

Nissan said B2V interprets the driver’s brain signals to assist with driving.

The system anticipates a driver’s reactions and will initiate maneuvers more quickly. It can also learn from the driver and make adjustments to reduce discomfort.

Unveiled at the 2019 North American International Auto Show, the IMs is pitched by Nissan as the “elevated sports sedan.” The carmaker said the IMs “takes full advantage of Nissan Intelligent Mobility in its packaging, platform and powertrain technology.” It is also the first Nissan concept car to feature I2V.

Nissan senior vice-president for marketing Roel De Vries said the company believes “technology should solve real-world problems and benefit as many people as possible.”

Makoto Uchida, senior vice-president and chairman of Nissan’s management committee for China, added; “By developing these technologies, we’ll make our customers’ lives better and ensure sustainable growth for our business.”
