∑(Sigma) 11 COCKPIT MODULE

<Features>
1. Lightweight and thin instrument panel with the use of small HVAC unit.
2. New operating and display system using next generation control devices.
3. The cockpit has been laid out into the driver's area and comfort area that follows the driver to drive at will and passengers to relax in comfort.

<Driver's Area>

It has become possible to input all driving functions directly. The driver is able to concentrate on driving stress-free as the cockpit layout has been designed so that all driving operations are within natural reach of the hands, thus contributing to the enhancement of safety of safety for people in the vehicle.

Steering Module
-Switch design is used where the switches are laid out in the order of the functions most frequently used during a drive.
-Steering angle has been markedly reduced, allowing the driver to operate the car with the minimum of turning angle.
-The incorporation of trigger-type accelerator in the steering wheel allows the driver to control acceleration with the index and middle fingers of both hands, while the traditional method of applying the brakes is done by the right foot.
-Combination switch functions have been arranged on the handle surface.

Vertical Meter
-The driver's downward field of vision has been reduced with the use of remote and large-scale indicator.
-The visible area for the meter has been expanded by lowering the handle.
-Night vision is also displayed in the meter.

Electronically Controlled A/T Shifter
-The shifter generates optimum handling torque based on ergonomics.


<Comfort Area>
-Functional switches that are infrequently used during driving and those that can be operated by the passengers have been placed in the instrument center and the console section. This feature provides comfortable driving to both the driver and passengers.

Centralized Switch Panel
-Centralized control switches are adopted in the center panel designed to allow the driver finger-tip control of air conditioner and audio system.

Pointing Device
-A  new centralized control switch (pointing device) has been incorporated in the console section which uses a sensor to detect an approaching hand and allowing the driver to place his hand and easily operate the air conditioner, auto system and navigation system.
-This device enables driving without forcing the driver to alter his posture.
-The pointing device is made in symmetrical design so that systems can be operated by the driver as well as the passengers.

Agent Function for Aiding Drive
-The Company has incorporated a system that acts like the driver's secretary who gives the driver appropriate advice with the use of voice synthesizing technology and artificial intelligence.

CPM Core Module


<Features and Aims>
The Company is continuously studying the most efficient layout for the steering member, HVAC unit, and the AC duct which the Company considers to be the core module. Specifically, for Nissan's Fuga, the Company uses a magnesium die-cast steering member that benefited in allowing the following:
Light weight: 25% less weight then the normally used steel steering member.
Space efficient: AC duct can be included within the member.
Less number of parts (integrated die-cast molding)

CO2 Air-Conditioning

<Aims>

Natural Gas
-Natural (not artificial)
-No toxicity and Non-flammable

Reproduced Material
-Reuse of CO2 discharged by the factory

Prevent Global Warming
-Very Small Global Warming Potential 1/1300 of that of HFC 134a

Auxiliary Heating
-The refrigerant is suitable for heat pump cycle

<Feature>
-Operating pressure is about 7 times the current refrigerant
-Special cycle exceeding the critical point
-Thermal properties that lowers efficiency in hot conditions

All-in-one, Compact & Light Weight HVAC Module

<Aims>
1. Compact HVAC module for CPM space utility
2. High performance & Ultra-light
3. Common use (Sedan - MPV & R/H/ L/H)

<Development Sample>

High performance & Low-Noise Compact 3-D Scroll & Fan
High performance Thin & Compact Evaporator
Slide Type Air / Mix Door Cartridge
Compact Distribution Door Module
High performance Thin & Compact Heater Core

Externally controlled Compressor

-Externally controlled compressor provides lower fuel consumption compared with a fixed capacity compressor.
-Capacity is varied by the electrical signal of external control system.

<Aims>
Light weight (-20% with Plastic Pulley)
Saves electric power consumption (-75%: from 40W to 10W)

Vane Rotary Compressors

-Vane Rotary Type compressor uses engine power directly without converting rotation energy to piston movement, which makes the Vane Rotary Compressor high performance.
-By adopting the simple structure and design, vane rotary compressor achieves less parts, small size and light weight.

Body Control Module

<Features>
-Reduction of wire harness by using CAN communication - The wire harness between the cabin and the engine room has been eliminated
-More value-added by adopting in combination switch signal
 -Combined lamp and hazard functions
 -Combined head lamp control functions
 -Combined wiper & window washer control functions

Smart keyless Entry System

<Features and Aims of Development>
1. Enhances the convenience of user.
2. High reliable electric wave communication based on its experiences with radio type keyless and immobilizers.
3. A built-in antenna within the CPM expanded the choice of the door handle design and material.

<Function>
A remote controller is only have to be carried. The lock/unlock of the door and having the engine started can be done without having to take out the remote control from your pocket, bag, etc.

Instrument Cluster Module with Display

<Features and Aims of Development>
1. Advanced Design with
-Meter Module (display ventilator and switch)

ETC (Electronic Toll Collection system) unit

<Aims>

The Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system was introduced from April 2001 with the aim to reduce exhaust gases by allowing vehicles to pass tollgates without stopping and thereby relieving highway traffic congestion. Its application is spreading rapidly. To respond to this trend, the Company has developed and commercialized an onboard unit for the ETC system.

<Features>
The ETC onboard unit is a built-in type with its antenna installed on the back side of the instrument panel and separated from the ETC main body.

Front-End Module

1. Cost reduction by parts integration (Target: -10%)
2. Reduction of assembly process by reducing number of parts (Target: -50%) (Other advantages: Assembly time reduction by eliminating complex process)
3. Weight reduction by resin radiator core support (Target: -20%)

<Features>
1. Parts of the front-end periphery, especially the R.C.S. (Radiator Core Support) are integrated in a rational way to help reduce the number of parts, weight, and cost. It also facilitates assembly and disassembly.
2. Total thermal management of cooling system including optimal airflow around the front-end.

EGR Cooler

Exhausted gas recirculation (EGR) systems and the common rail system applies high pressure fuel injection unit, which has been used to comply with exhaust gas regulations for diesel engine vehicles (to reduce NOx, PM). Since the regulations are becoming even severer, the development of the technologies to reduce the emission has been accelerated. The EGR  cooler systems, one of these technologies, lower the combustion temperatures which help reduce NOx efficiently.

<Features>
1. High performance and low gas resistance
2. High aging performance
3. High corrosion resistance
(Patent applied: 27 in Japan, USA and EUR)

Retains the filter by using across-the-surface MAT

Lowered the loss from airflow resistance.
The MAT has the heat retention effect to alleviate the drop in temperature surrounding the catalyst filter
There' re less number of parts and easier to assemble.

<Features>
-High performance
-Heat retention
-Cost down

Oval Spun Converter

<Aims>

Light weight
Cost down

1. Heat shroud was eliminated through applying across-the-surface MAT support (The MAT works as a heat shroud and keeps the case's surface temperature down)

2. Parts and weight can be reduced by changing method of construction.
3. Cost is reduced by the reduction of number of parts.
