the heart of the new Nissan Qashqai lies accessible technology. A suite of
innovations which, when combined, form a unique package of driver aids which
not only significantly enhance safety and convenience, but deliver exceptional
value to Nissan drivers.
Safety Shield is a collection of features designed to enhance the safety of
occupants in line with Nissan's ongoing vision towards zero accidents, a
sentiment underlined by the company's commitment to produce commercially viable
autonomous vehicles by 2020.
the new Qashqai, Safety Shield technologies include several innovative features. It has Forward Emergency Braking. By
scanning the road ahead using a built-in radar system, the Qashqai delivers
three levels of assistance. First is an audible warning, alerting the driver if
the gap to the car in front is closing. Secondly, if the driver does not react,
the brakes are automatically partially applied. Finally if the gap is still
closing, the brakes will be applied harder if necessary.
there is Driver Attention Alert. The new Qashqai gets to know you so that it
can tell when you are getting drowsy. After learning your driving style, the
system will monitor driving inputs, showing a dashboard alert if steering
becomes erratic, indicating the driver should take a break.
is also Traffic Sign Recognition. Helping new Qashqai drivers to both stay safe
and within the law, speed limit signs are automatically read by the
front-facing camera and displayed to the driver. This function works across
Europe, regardless of national sign typography. It even recognises that some
countries enforce a weather dependent lower speed limit if it's raining, so
both dry and wet weather limits are displayed to the driver.
Lane Departure Warning is a great
feature for multi-lane highways. It detects if the car is starting to drift out
of lane. Advanced computer programming detects road markings allowing the
Qashqai to determine if it is drifting out of position. If it does, and the
driver has not operated the indicators, a warning is given to the driver to
correct their road position.
