Nissan plans to unveil a brand new virtual – real vision concept at this year’s CES trade show. The concept focuses on allowing drivers to see the invisible by merging both real and virtual world environments to create a truly connected car experience.
Invisible-to-Visible, or I2V, a technology being developed with an outlook on the futures, has been created through Nissan Intelligent Mobility which is the company’s vision to rework how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society. I2V, demonstrates the future of driving to CES using an interactive 3D immersion experience. It also allows the driver a visibility of what is around the corner of the building, making driving a more pleasurable and safe experience. The concept also features more interactive solutions that offer guidance, such as a human-like avatar which appears inside the car.
I2V uses sensors to merge information outside and inside the vehicle along with data from the cloud. This empowers the system to track the vehicle’s immediate surroundings and also anticipate the road ahead. Using I2V many new possibilities for service and communication open up, making driving more convenient, exciting and comfortable.
The I2V technology is powered by Nissan’s Omni-Sensing technology, it acts as a hub to gather real time data from the external environment and interiors of the vehicle. Nissan’s Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM) technology scans the road conditions through real time data and the ProPILOT semiautonomous driver support system offers information of the vehicle’s surroundings.
