Japanese Auto Makers Test Accident-Prevention Systems on Virtual "Fields"

Japanese Auto Makers Test Accident-Prevention Systems on Virtual "Fields"

The Nissan Motor Company soon will roll out the first automobile with accident-prevention systems equipped with the latest technology, reports allheadlinenews.com (AHN), an independent news agency in Tokyo.

The Japanese vehicle maker tested prototypes on a sedan with radar sensors to measure the distance between two vehicles. For instance, when one vehicle gets too close to one in front, its accelerator pedal applies pressure to the driver's foot to alert the operator to slow down. There is also a computerized braking system that is applied if it is determined that a driver can’t control a vehicle to avoid an accident.

Other Japanese auto makers are conducting similar tests.

Fuji plans to install two cameras on the windshield of a sedan. The car automatically stops if the cameras sense pedestrians or bikers are too close to avoid contact. The sedan has a pre-programmed acceleration system that speeds the car if the operator fails to do so. The same system automatically slows the vehicle if an obstacle ahead is detected to be too close to avoid contact.

Toyota currently is using a driving simulator in its laboratory that simulates driving on a virtual road. Engineers can measure what is seen by an operator and the operator’s physical reaction if the vehicle is determined to be moving too fast or too slowly for certain road conditions.
