Nissan Motor to install new multi-view monitor system for light trucks

Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., a Japan-based manufacturer and seller of automobiles, has announced that it will install a new multi-view monitor system on specially equipped Atlas F24 dry and refrigerated vans throughout Japan.

According to the company, the multi-view monitor system is an advanced version of the around-view monitor for passenger cars that has been modified especially for trucks.

Cameras installed at four points on top of the truck carriage take images of what's around the vehicle. These images are displayed on a high-mount monitor installed in the upper part of the cab interior, and help convey to the driver information about the exterior situation, the company said.

"The multi-view monitor system, which is one of Nissan's leading technologies, is a new visual system for trucks that provides customers with greater convenience in a variety of truck-driving situations," said Nissan Corporate vice president Hideto Murakami, responsible for the Global LCV Business Unit.

"With the new system, we expect that our customers will experience more driving efficiency," added Murakami. "This is just one example of Nissan's commitment to continuing improvements to our products that will add value for our customers."
