– Technology maps a 360-degree virtual space around the car
– It can also monitor the people inside the vehicle by using interior sensors
Nissan has been making huge waves when it comes to autonomous and connected car technologies and this time at the upcoming CES trade show, Nissan will unveil its future vision for a vehicle that helps drivers “see the invisible” by merging both real and virtual worlds, creating the ultimate connected-car experience.
Invisible-to-Visible, or I2V, is a future technology created through Nissan Intelligent Mobility. I2V aims to support drivers by merging information from sensors outside and inside the vehicle with data from the cloud. This enables the system not only to track the vehicle’s immediate surroundings but also to anticipate what’s ahead – even showing what’s behind a building or around the corner. To make driving more enjoyable, guidance is given in an interactive, human-like way, such as through avatars that appear inside the car.
Visitors will be able to experience I2V at Nissan’s display by putting on a pair of augmented-reality goggles and stepping inside a demonstration cockpit featuring three dimensional interfaces and displays.
