Nissan announced a new driver-assistance technology, which is currently in-development, that utilizes highly accurate, real-time information about the vehicle’s surrounding environment to dramatically enhance collision avoidance. At a Nissan facility here, a test vehicle was used to demonstrate how this technology can automatically perform collision-avoidance maneuvers. Nissan’s “ground truth perception” technology fuses information from next-generation high-performance LIDAR, radar and cameras. The technology can detect the shape and distance of objects, as well as the structure of the area surrounding the vehicle, in real time with a high degree of accuracy. Utilizing this information, it is possible for the vehicle to instantly analyze the current situation, judge and automatically perform required collision-avoidance operations. This technology can also detect slowed traffic and road obstacles in the distance and execute lane changes accordingly. Importantly, the technology can also provide increased support to drivers in areas where detailed map information is not available.

Kia Motors has made substantial upgrades to its smallest model, the Kia Picanto, due on-sale in Europe during the third quarter of 2020. Offering a range of new safety and telematics technologies often reserved for larger, more expensive vehicles, the upgraded model also boasts lower emissions from newly reengineered powertrains, and striking design updates, inside and out. The upgraded Kia Picanto brings with it a suite of advanced safety technology from Kia's larger cars, making it among the safest cars in its class. It also offers Kia's new 'Phase II' UVO Connect telematics technologies, enhancing vehicle connectivity and control to take the stress out of journeys. Enhancements to the Picanto's petrol powertrain line-up include Kia's optional new Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) for a smoother drive.
With a brand-typical performance characteristics with sovereign noiselessness and exemplary efficiency, the drive system of the new BMW iX3 ensures fascinating and locally emission-free driving pleasure. The purely electrically powered SAV is the first model to use the latest, now fifth, generation of BMW eDrive technology. It comprises an electric motor developed in-house by the BMW Group, the power electronics, particularly advanced charging technology and a model-specific high-voltage battery. The BMW iX3 is thus the pioneer for the latest development stage of electric drive systems within the BMW Group. The fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology is highly scalable and can therefore be used in different vehicle concepts - initially in the BMW iX and BMW i4 and soon also in electrified models from other series.
The Discovery Sport of the 2021 year reaches a new dimension in terms of the digital experience. Because the equipment of the series now includes the ultra-modern Pivi-Infotainment system, which was first seen in the new Land Rover Defender. Pivi is ready for use right from the start - its own battery and a separate data plan ensure immediate operation, and there is almost no need to boot the system. The integrated data connection enables free software updates "over-the-air" at any time, whereby the updates can be started at the right time as required. In this way, users of the Discovery Sport always have the latest data for maps, apps or the vehicle system - without having to visit the workshop. The backbone of the infotainment system is a new, high-performance electronic vehicle architecture. In Discovery Sport there is infotainment either as a Pivi version or - from the Discovery Sport S - as an even more extensive Pivi Pro.
