Speaking of the test, it is now being done by the West Nippon Expressway Company - the entity that operates western Japan freeways. While the wide range uses of cellular phones are already in place, the Nissan warning system for drivers will exploit the medium through GPS and map databases in order to minimize or prevent road accidents. This is in parallel with Nissan's goal to reduce the number of fatalities in car crashes by 2015 (sources: edmunds.com and nissan.com).
In view of the above developments, Nissan in fact participated in the ITS-Safety 2010 Industry-Wide Test on January 7, 2009, the Nissan Motor Co., Ltd reported. It was a large-scale test of future auto related Intelligent Transportation Systems. Not long from now, this New Warning System for Drivers will soon be available for transfer worldwide.
