SELF-HEALING SCRATCH SHIELD
Scratch recovery clear (SRC) uses the elasticity of special chemically composed matters in a clear paint that has self-healing properties. Scratches are automatically fixed over a period of time.
Scratch Shield is a clearcoat that is more scratch resistant compared with conventional clearcoats, helping a vehicle maintain its new look for a longer period of time. The paint also repairs fine scratches, restoring a vehicle’s surface close to its original state. Nissan will continue to expand the adoption of Scratch Shield globally.
A special highly elastic resin has been combined with a conventional clearcoat to increase the paint’s flexibility. This has also increased its strength by raising the resin density.
-The paint does not self-repair if scratches are deep enough to sever the bonds within the clearcoat or if the clearcoat has been peeled off.
-The amount of time required for self-repair depends on the surrounding temperature and the depth of the scratch. In some cases, restoration may take up to one week.
SOLAR CELL SUNROOF
Solar cells are a representative form of environmentally-friendly and renewable energy. We are applying solar cells to automobile sunroofs and using the A/C fan operation to reduce the A/C load during summertime while enhancing cooling performance and cooling fuel efficiency.
While solar is great as a source of energy and something we follow diligently here, it requires a great deal of space to make it worthwhile for transportation applications. In reality, not much power would have been gained. The previous panels were 50watts or about a 6th of a solid 3’x5′ solar panel. It will reportedly be able to charge your battery pack to contribute to the vehicle’s electric range.
NANO GLASS (WIPERLESS VEHICLES)
Nanotechnology is utilized to automatically remove water or dust from the front windshield without the need for wipers. Space holographic technology is a progressive technology that displays various driving and driver convenience information on the front windshield in the form of a 3D hologram.
How does it work?
The windshield is made of a special glass with four high-tech layers that change the characteristics of glass at the molecular level.
The outermost layer is based on titanium dioxide: filters the sun and waterproofs the windshield.
The second layer of glass is actually made up of microscopic dust pushing dirt on the sides of the glass.
The third layer contains sensors that sense the dirtiness and wetness of the windshield.
Like an LCD display, the fourth layer conducts electricity, needed to power this complex multilayer windshield.
The non-pneumatic tires eliminate the possibility of flat tires with its special honeycomb-shaped tires or wheels that are covered in rubber on the outside.
Lastly, these tires practically eliminate the possibility of flat tires because the honeycomb design eliminates the need for air to be in the tire at all.
Benefits will be No Flat Tires – Ever, You Won’t Need a Spare Tire, Reduced Co2 Emissions and Eco-Conscious.
