Default Nissan Develops Two New Driver-Assist Systems for Curvy Roads



Quote:
TOKYO, JAPAN July 24, 2009: Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced the development of two advanced technologies designed to help drivers make smooth turns by synchronizing the vehicle's navigation, engine, braking and steering systems.

By linking the existing Distance Control Assist System to navigation map data, the Navigation-Cooperative Intelligent Pedal can help the driver decelerate or brake as the car enters a curve based on real-time navigation information. Active Stability Assist helps control vehicle yaw moment, deceleration and braking on curves depending on driver demand. Both are designed to make driving more comfortable.

Distance Control Assist/Navigation-Cooperative Intelligent Pedal The new Distance Control Assist system combines the distance control feature first introduced on the Nissan Fuga in December 2007 with the car's navigation system. Based on map information indicating a curve ahead, the system moves the accelerator pedal upward to assist the driver to release the accelerator pedal.

Once the foot is lifted off the pedal, the system smoothly reduces vehicle speed by activating the brakes. This is the world's first driving assist system focused on reducing the driver's workload on curvy roads by integrating navigation, accelerator pedal, powertrain and brakes.

This system is scheduled for introduction on the new Fuga, which is set for release in Japan in fall 2009.

Active Stability Assist
The Active Stability Assist system supports the driver's control of the vehicle by helping to synchronize braking, steering and engine response. The system helps smooth vehicle operation and enhances full driving enjoyment on winding mountain roads or freeways.

The system senses driving demands based on the driver's steering and acceleration/braking patterns, and individually controls the braking and application of torque to each of the four wheels to help smooth vehicle response. During braking, the system optimizes the distribution of force to each of the four wheels depending on the radius of the curve.

This system is designed to make the driver feel more in control.

This system is scheduled for use on the new Fuga which will be released later in Nissan's current fiscal year

This seems like a terrible idea. Automatically letting up the gas and applying brakes because the GPS system says a curve is coming?

You don't brake for corners!

I'm not a fan of all these new-fangled devices that make it that you are required to do less driving

By interfering with the throttle and brakes?

Terribly stupid idea that will ultimately save lives, 'cause people are too busy texting while driving and other retarded **** like that. I say let Darwinism thrive.

I don't even feel comfortable with the cruise control most of the time, I'd probably have a conniption if this was installed on my car.

Me too..I am always afraid it is going to accelerate at the wrong time.

That will be the motivation, but in reality this might just make drivers even less attentive to what they're doing.
