The Nissan ASV-2 was developed during the second phase (FY 1996–2000) of the Advanced Safety Vehicle (ASV) program promoted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. Newly developed technologies are incorporated into the vehicle specifically for reducing the number of traffic accidents overall. Overviews are given of the major individual systems that have been developed as Nissan ASV technologies, and several systems that are distinctive features of the ASV-2 are discussed in detail.
