Nissan to Begin Intelligent Transport System Tests
Nissan Motor has announced that it will initiate a large-scale community-based test of its intelligent transport system, integrating cellular communications with vehicle telematics to help prevent pedestrian-related accidents.
The pilot project will be conducted in Atsugi, Kanagawa Prefecture for a two-month period from November 1, 2008 to December 27, 2008.
The participants will use a cellular phone that is compatible to the Nissan navigation system on-board test vehicles, and will go about their regular daily routines, commuting within the neighborhood.
