At the recent CES Asia in Shanghai, Nissan displayed its Invisible-to-Visible (I2V) as part of its Nissan Intelligent Mobility offering. The technology is intended to help drivers see the invisible, combining information from sensors inside and outside the car with data from the cloudt.

This connected car experience provides guidance in an interactive, human-like way, including avatars that can appear inside the car. Accessing the virtual realm also means there are more ways to communicate.

I2V makes use of several technologies: ProPILOT delivers information about the environment around the vehicle; Omni-Sensing technology provides real-time traffic data; and SAM (Seamless Autonomous Mobility) technology analyzes real-time data about the road environment. The system was recently tested in Japan using 5G mobile technology. 

“We don’t just anticipate future trends and technologies, we define them,” said Roel De Vries, senior vice president for marketing at Nissan. ”We believe technology should solve real-world problems and benefit as many people as possible. This is the idea behind Nissan Intelligent Mobility, our vision for moving people to a better world.”
