Popular Science’s “2012 Best of What’s New” Includes Nissan DeltaWing

Nissan DeltaWingPopular Science magazine has named their “2012 Best of What’s New” products and innovations. The list includes top tech innovations that represent significant advancements across twelve categories. The Nissan DeltaWing has been included on this list.

Debuting this past summer at the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race in France, DeltaWing is a ground-breaking racecar that features half the weight of the typical Le Mans prototype car. It also only consumes about half the fuel of these other racecars.

“The Nissan DeltaWing was designed and built with the initial aim of completing the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans using just half the fuel and half the tires of contemporary sports prototypes,” said Darren Cox, Nissan’s Global Motorsports Director. “This recognition from Popular Science is evidence that the Nissan DeltaWing is truly something different, and we’re glad that its innovative contributions to racing have been recognized.”

“One of the key elements to the success of the DeltaWing is its highly-advanced and hugely-efficient Nissan 1.6 engine,” added Cox. “During the project, our engineers learned a lot about high performance, high efficiency engines as well as radical aerodynamics, advanced lightweight technologies and breakthrough chassis dynamics. All these things are important trends in road car development. Nissan used this project to fast track our learning.”

Nissan Introduces Autonomous Emergency Steering

Whether it was a rabbit, a deer, a raccoon or maybe even another car on the road, every driver has had an instance where something has jumped out in front of their vehicle and it was too late to brake, so they had to swerve to avoid hitting it.  Hopefully your reactions were fast enough, or Thumper may have just become road kill.

Luckily for wildlife creatures everywhere, Nissan has announced the development of it “Autonomous Emergency Steering System.”  According to Nissan’s release, the “system offers a high level of collision avoidance capability by applying automatic braking and automatic steering in situations where a collision is imminent and evading obstacles by braking may not be effective.”

Essentially what the system will be able to do is avoid unexpected obstacles automatically for the driver when it is too late to successfully engage the brake to avoid the collision.  It does this by utilizing a front-mounted camera equipped with radar, two right and left rear radars and five laser scanners placed around the vehicle.
