Nissan Unveils Invisible-To-Visible Technology Concept at the CES Trade Show.

At the CES Trade Show, Nissan will unveil their future vision for Invisible-To-Visible or I2V technology.

This will help the driver to “see the invisible” by merging the real world with virtual reality, creating the ultimate connected-car experience.

I2V is a future technology created through Nissan Intelligent Motability, the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society. At the CES trade show, Nissan will demonstrate the future of driving through an interactive, three-dimensional immersion experience.

I2V will support the driver by merging information from sensors outside and inside the vehicle with data from the cloud. This will enable the system to track the vehicles immediate surroundings and also to anticipate what’s ahead, even showing what’s behind a building or around a corner.

Merging the real world with virtual reality will open up endless possibilities for service and communication making driving more convenient, comfortable and exciting.

“By helping you see the invisible, I2V enhances your confidence and makes driving more enjoyable” said Tetsuro Ueda, an expert leader at the Nissan Research Centre. “The interactive feature creates an experience that’s tailored to your interests and driving style so that anyone can enjoy using it in their own way”.

I2V is powered by Nissan’s Omni-Sensing technology, which acts as a hub gathering real-time data from the traffic environment and from the vehicles surrounding and interior. Nissan’s SAM (Seamless Autonomous Mobility) technology analyses the road environment through relevant real-time information and the ProPilot semiautonomous driver support system provides information about the car's surroundings.

To provide information about things like road and intersection status, visibility, signage or nearby pedestrians the technology maps a 360-degree virtual space around the car. It can also monitor the people inside the vehicle by using interior sensors to better anticipate when the may need assistance with finding something or a coffee break to stay alert.

I2V can connect drivers and passengers to people in the Metaverse virtual world, this enables friends, family or others to appear inside the car as three-dimensional, augmented-reality avatars to provide the driver with company and assistance.

IV2 can make driving more enjoyable for example if you are driving in the rain, the scenery of a sunny day can be projected inside the vehicle. Or when driving in a new area, the system can search within the Metaverse for a knowledgeable local guide who can communicate with people in the vehicle in real time. Information provided by the guide can be collected with Omni-Sensing and stored in the cloud so when others visit the same location it can access the knowledgeable guide.

During manual driving, I2V provides information from Omni-Sensing as an overlay in the driver’s full field of view. The information helps driver assess and prepare for things like corners with poor visibility, irregular road surface or oncoming traffic.

I2V will display information about congestion and estimated travel time and can communicate unique details to better inform the driver about the road ahead. I2V will also give alternative suggestions, even down to the best-moving lane in heavy traffic, by using real-time local data mapping via Omni-Sensing.

When drivers arrive at a destination, I2V can access SAM and will scan for parking spaces and park the vehicle in difficult parking situations.

At CES visitors will be able to experience I2V by putting on a pair of augmented-reality goggle and stepping inside a demonstration cockpit featuring three-dimensional interfaces and displays.

Ancaster Nissan Bromley were great because Damion was attentive to detail, had the product ready for us to test drive even though we were early and worked with us to help us get what we wanted as apposed to trying to sell us something we didn't want - an experience we had with another car dealer.

I'd recommend Ancaster Nissan Bromley because their service/sales people and helpfulness was beyond my expectation. Nothing was too much for them. I went for a used Micra, found one with the help of Damien, then I cheekily asked if they had one in burnt orange, and within 20 minutes they found me one. Now how’s that for service - and with a smile. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
