Overview of Mitsubishi Safety Technology!!!

The Mitsubishi car range are packed full of Active Safety Systems, which is technology that assists in the prevention of a crash. 

Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS)

ABS is an active safety system which can help a driver avoid obstacles and a collision during heavy braking or while braking on slippery road surfaces. It prevents the wheels from locking up under heavy braking or while braking on slippery road surfaces, thereby allowing the driver to maintain steering control and steer around potential obstructions and/or avoid collisions. 

Active Cornering Lights (ACL)

ACL provides support for night driving by additionally illuminating the direction in which the vehicle is moving in accordance with the steering angle. 35W halogen bulbs are used in the cornering lights. 

Active Stability and Traction Control (ASC)

Active Stability and Traction Control helps drivers maintain control in adverse driving conditions and during emergency maneuvers. It constantly monitors available traction and alerts the control unit, which works with the vehicle’s anti-lock braking system to counteract slipping or loss of control by applying the brakes on specific wheels to help keep the vehicle moving in the intended direction. 

e-Assist

e-Assist is a new active safety system that uses millimeter-wavelength radar as well as a camera to further increase driving safety and peace of mind. it comprises of three functions such as:

  • Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM)

  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDW)

Tips on U-Turn and Three Point Turn

U-Turn along the divider 

  1. Always stay in the left most lane.
  2. Slow down and make sure to know that no one is in your way.
  3. Since the U-turn is 180-degree turn the wheel almost all the way depending on the medium. If the medium is narrow turn the wheel completely, and if the medium is wider turn a bit less.
  4. Now the most important are always look at where you want to go.
  5. And at final to make it easier, just make the wheel to slide between your hands while accelerating. So that the wheel restricts themselves to move smoothly.

Three Point Over

  1. First, to make space to your left move the vehicle to the right and slow down the vehicle.
  2. Do the verification that there is no approaching vehicle either from front or back. As we will be crossing in the two-way street.
  3. Turn the Steering wheel completely till it blocks.
  4. If the turn did not happen in a single attempt, do verification again and take the reverse by turning the steering wheel completely to the right.
  5. Then turn the wheel to the left completely and keep on going till the car is straight.

Above all this, before taking a U-Turn be aware of signs prohibiting them.

Mitsubishi adds more Innovation to the list

AS&G – Auto Stop and Go

AS&G idling stop automatically stops and starts the engine when the vehicle stops and starts.

As you can see in the above image, AS&G idling stop automatically stops and starts the engine when the vehicle stops and starts.

Idling Stop is a technology that automatically stops the engine when the vehicle stops. and automatically starts the engine when the vehicle starts moving again, for example when stopped and waiting at a traffic light. By turning off the engine when the car is in use but not moving, fuel economy is improved and CO2 is also reduced as exhaust gasses are eliminated when the engine is off. It works automatically and there is no difference between driving a car with AS&G and a car without it.

ACL – Active Cornering Lights

ACL provides support for night driving by additionally illuminating the direction in which the vehicle is moving in accordance with the steering angle.

35W halogen bulbs are used in the cornering lights. The system links with the turn signal light at speeds of 40km/h or less and also links with the angle of the steering wheel to additionally illuminating the direction in which the vehicle is moving. ACL makes driving at dark intersections, curves, etc. safer.

ACD  – Active Center Differential

The corporate philosophy of Mitsubishi Motors includes “Driving Pleasure” and “Toughness & Safety.” Our Integrated Vehicle Dynamics Control System which controls both the driving force and braking force of the four wheels has made new-generation driving possible.

The ACD is a system that electronically controls the differential limit between the front and rear wheels to distribute an appropriate driving force to the four wheels. The system sets the base driving force distribution to 50:50 and controls the differential limit between the front and rear wheels from “Free” to “Locked 4WD.” It makes precise control a reality by using information about the wheel speed, the steering wheel angle, the engine torque, the brake pressure, and the yaw rate sensor, and combines a high level of traction performance and steering response adapted to the driving conditions.

Environmental Technology of Mazda!!!

Mazda is always working hard to develop environmental technologies which will contribute to an exciting and sustainable future for people, automobiles, and the Earth. 

Idling Stop Technology

Idling stop systems save fuel by automatically shutting down the engine when the vehicle is static and restarting it when the vehicle returns to motion. This Technology of Mazda improves fuel economy by approximately eight percent. Mazda’s i-stop restarts the engine through combustion. 

This technology enables the system to restart the engine with exactly the same timing every time, to enhance fuel economy, and to deliver smooth and comfortable acceleration for the driver at restart. The restart takes place in a mere 0.35 seconds, which is about half of the time taken by conventional starter-motor idling stop systems. 

Brake Energy Regeneration System

Brake energy regeneration systems convert a vehicle’s kinetic energy into electricity as the car decelerates. The electricity is then stored for later use. It can be used to power the headlights, climate control, audio system, or any other electrical equipment. This reduces the need for the engine to burn extra fuel in order to generate electricity, and thereby improves fuel economy. 

Electric Vehicle

Mazda undertook development of electric vehicles with the aim of offering all our customers fun-to-drive performance and outstanding environmental and safety performance. The result is the Demio EV which offers both the sporty driving people expect from Mazda and a remarkable driving range of 200 km. 

Electric vehicles have batteries and electric motors instead of engines and fuel tanks, and are powered entirely by electricity. The Demio EV features a unique coil-switching motor which delivers both high torque and high RPMs. Another special feature of electric vehicles is the quietude of the cabin due to the complete lack of engine noise.

Hydrogen Vehicle

Mazda’s hydrogen rotary engine use hydrogen as its fuel, emits no CO2 and offers superb environmental performance. A dual-fuel system allows the vehicle to run on either gasoline or hydrogen. The RENESIS hydrogen rotary engine employs direct injection, with an electronically-controlled hydrogen gas injector.

The Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid combines Mazda’s hydrogen rotary engine with a hybrid system for significantly improved performance and practicality. The engine’s reduced intake/exhaust resistance and improved combustion efficiency yields high power output across a wide range of engine speeds.
