Nissan managed to develop the Autonomus Emergency Steering System


Japanese engineers working for Nissan carmaker have developed their Autonomous Emergency Steering System, which has as base the steer by wire system. This new technological achievement will automatically apply the brakes and steer the car when there is now way of avoiding a collision. The specialists have designed it to work both at high speeds and low speeds every time the driver has problems noticing an impending crash. The Japanese carmaker had a lot of projects involving brake-based control technology. They have been developing and selling them for quite some time now. What is really special about the Emergency Steering System is that it is involved in situations that cannot be mitigated through braking alone. How does it work? Well, to avoid any accident, technology needs to identify potential obstacles; actually this is how it can prevent the accident from occurring.



The system contains high-precision sensing technology and on-board control technology. The Emergency Steering System automatically steers the vehicle away, to reduce the effects of the impact. It uses information from the radar and camera mounted in the front, from the two left and right rear radars, but also from the five laser scanners attached around the vehicle. In the same time, the system scans the zone around looking for places with no obstacles, making sure there are no vehicles approaching from the rear. The carmaker has the Vision Zero safety goal trying to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries. The new system has as base the Safety Shield which tries to identify six stages of driving conditions. It starts with normal driving conditions and it goes all the way through post-accident condition. It offers the best solution no matter the source of danger it meets. We have to admit, the new technology might be able of saving a lot of lives.
