2011 Nissan Safety Innovation: Acceleration Suppression for Pedal Misapplication

Loading the player ...

In car parks or other confined areas, in order to help mitigate collisions with obstacles such as walls due to the driver’s misapplication of the accelerator instead of the brake or pressing on the accelerator too hard, Nissan has developed a function to recognize whether the vehicle is on a road or in a car park by using image signal data acquired by the Around View Monitor’s four unit cameras.

When the driver presses the accelerator pedal to the floor, this function allows the vehicle to accelerate if it is on a road, and does not in a parking space.

This system is also designed to detect obstacles using sonar, and automatically applies the brake to help avoid or mitigate collisions when the vehicle is in danger of touching or colliding with nearby obstacles.

Using features of Around View Monitor and the sonar system, this technology helps reduce the risk of accidents occurring through misapplication of the accelerator and brake brought about by driver operational mistakes. Nissan aims to commercialize this technology within two years.
