Nissan is well renowned for producing quality, modern vehicles with plenty of technological aids to boot.
Now, it claims that the Around View Monitor system, fitted in many of its vehicles, as well as its Safety Shield, is able to enhance the driver's field of vision.
The firm will include the technological tools in its new Nissan Note and believes that they will help to enhance the usual field of vision, which for most people is around 120 degrees.
Nissan claims that it will be like drivers having eyes in the back of their head, with the Safety Shield and Around View Monitor allowing owners to see all around them, minimising the risk of accidents and making for simpler manoeuvres.
The Safety Shield is a real bundle of kit for Nissan owners, as it includes a Blind Spot Warning system, a Lane Departure Warning and Moving Object Detection - three ways in which driving is made safer.
As for the Around View Monitor system, this is a 5.8-inch dashboard-mounted screen which displays a full, virtual 360-degree view.
The Nissan Note is the first car in its sector to offer such a piece of kit and ensures that drivers can still have access to an affordable car, with all the piece of technology included, for an reasonable price.
Geraldine Ingham, chief marketing manager for small cars for Nissan in Europe, said the technology would help make drivers safe and confident.
"From talking to drivers through our research groups, we found that being able to see what's happening around them is a key factor in making them feel safer and more confident when driving and manoeuvring," she explained.
"With this in mind, we wanted to develop a technology that gave Nissan drivers a better view of the road. Safety Shield and Around View Monitor have been engineered to enhance drivers' vision and let them see more of their surroundings, helping to keep them safer and minimise accidental bumps and scrapes."
