Hitachi Construction Machinery to use driver-less technology

Hitachi Construction Machinery is to use Nissan’s ‘Around View Monitor and Moving Object Detection’ technology in its construction machinery.

The two systems are the basis of autonomous driving technology that will operate commercially by 2020.

The Around View Monitor is a parking support system that offers the driver a bird’s eye view of the vehicle’s surroundings in real time using four exterior cameras.

MOD is a driving assistance technology that analyzes the images from the AVM cameras to detect moving objects around the vehicle and warn the driver with visual and audio alerts.

The licensing agreement enables Hitachi Construction Machinery to provide Around View Monitor and Moving Object Detection technology to its haul trucks and excavators.

When drivers start operating the vehicle, drop cargo, back up to load cargo, or when a shovel is used in close proximity to the vehicle, the technology detects any movement or workers in the area, enabling the driver to work with greater situational awareness which enhances safety.

Autonomous Drive is being developed to help lower the element of human error during driving and contribute to a reduction in the number of accidents and injuries related to automobiles.
