Nissan has introduced its Safety Shield suite of technologies to the Note compact MPV as part of its commitment \"to introduce useful and accessible technologies.\"
The Safety Shield is a network of three innovative safety features that combine to provide drivers \"with exceptional visibility and protection.\"
Unlike similar systems that rely on multi-camera setups and radar systems to monitor movements around the car, all three elements of Nissan\'s Safety Shield work using just a single, wide-angle rear-view camera.
The Safety Shield consists of the following systems:
Blind Spot Warning: If a vehicle is detected in either blind spot at the rear of the vehicle, a warning light illuminates in the Note\'s side mirror. If the driver indicates changing lanes and the system detects a vehicle in the danger area, the light flashes and an audible warning is given.
Lane Departure Warning: An advanced computer program detects even faint road markings, allowing the car to determine if it is drifting out of its lane without indicating a lane change. If it is, a warning is given to the driver to correct his road position.
Moving Object Detection: The system gives an audible and visual alert if someone or something is moving behind the car, like a child walking behind the vehicle while it is reversing. Images from the camera are displayed on a 5.8-inch screen.
Do you think we\'ll ever see Nissan\'s Safety Shield on our local models, especially now that Nissan Motor Company of Japan is coming back to the Philippines?
