Nissan’s future car development lies in intelligent transportation.
Manila, Philippines – nissan caught a glimpse of their future at the nissan 360 event in yokohama, Japan, last year. This future does not have zero deaths and zero emissions. Known as “smart transportation”, this is a development concept that will shape all nissan cars.
Although self-driving and all-electric car world as well as decades of time, especially in countries like the Philippines, but did not stop nissan will be the basis of intelligent transportation into the car, after all, they believe that makes driving becomes more personal, empowerment, exciting. At the same time, as they move towards fully autonomous cars, the technology they produce will make them smarter and safer.
Nissan has identified three pillars of smart mobility: intelligent drive, smart power and smart integration.
While the goal of intelligent driving is to produce fully autonomous vehicles (and this is what nissan promised by 2020), intelligent driving is the first to offer more confident driving. All of this is about performance, comfort and safety, reducing the stress of daily work, and minimizing insecurity. So many of these advances already exist, or are readily available in existing nissan cars.
A good example of intelligent driving is the x-trail’s rv. Providing a 360-degree view of the vehicle around the vehicle can boost your confidence when you are maneuvering through parking or on obstructions on city streets. Further, the lane departure warning and the forward emergency brake are two other technologies of this category.
Next, intelligent power is to provide truly useful power and acceleration without sacrificing fuel economy. However, power and torque are not comprehensive and may not ultimately be available to customers (gt-r notwithstanding). The ultimate goal of this pillar will be to produce zero-emission vehicles, but with excellent scope and performance. To that end, nissan should consider not only the current battery technology in products such as the Leaf, but other alternatives such as hydrogen fuel technology.
However, as the world continues to move towards electrification, nissan has invested in providing seamless power and accelerated technology and improved fuel economy. The x-tronic variable transmission or CVT is an example of this. Currently available in most of nissan’s gasoline products: Almera, Sylphy, Altima, Juke and x-trail -CVT are known to improve fuel efficiency by keeping engine speed at optimum levels. At the same time, a 2.5 liter, 4-cylinder diesel engine with a 7 speed automatic transmission on the NP300 Navara is another example. Not only does it provide 190hp and 450Nm torque, but smaller displacement is 11% more efficient than Navara.
Finally, intelligent integration is designed to allow cars to communicate with a common infrastructure. Through connected cars, rather than letting them run separately, roads, charging stations and even parking Spaces will be optimized. Eventually, this will reduce traffic congestion and make more efficient use of urban space. Unfortunately, at this point, this connectivity is more like science fiction than science fiction. At the same time, nissan knows that it needs not only the help of lawmakers, but also the help of other carmakers to develop laws, standards and policies that support autonomous driving and data sharing.
Nissan provides intelligent integration here and here to help customers complete their daily work in the way their vehicles work and run. Power for size, not power or size. This is to understand the needs and requirements of customers and meet these requirements. The product of this way of thinking is the Navara EnGuard concept, which shows how to reinstall the production truck as the ultimate rescue machine.
The Navara EnGuard concept car is equipped with a variety of devices that can help it run in some of the worst and most extreme environments in the world. Compared with the standard Navara, it has increased by 50mm and has the function of fender and emergency flash. A very good contact is the fluorescent green applique, so choose, because it is the most common color in the day, the most obvious color blindness patients. In the back, there is a pull-out tray full of two-way radios, rescue equipment, life jackets, oxygen tanks, and even a recovery kit. There is even a portable battery pack that can be used as a substitute for a diesel generator powered by the Navara engine.
The goal of zero emissions and zero deaths will help guide nissan’s drive, how it drives and how it fits into society. Since the birth of the world’s first mass-produced electric car Leaf in 2010, nissan has invested heavily in research and development. While the outcome of smart transportation will not be fully realized in the coming decades, it will help drive the world toward a safer, more sustainable future.
