Nissan Offers World’s First Multi-View Monitor System for Light Trucks

Monday, January 28th, 2013

130125-01-01 Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. will install a new multi-view monitor system on specially equipped Atlas F24 dry and refrigerated vans starting January 25 throughout Japan.

The multi-view monitor system is an advanced technology from Nissan that was first displayed in an exhibit at the Tokyo Motor Show and Tokyo Truck Show in 2011. It is an advanced version of the around-view monitor for passenger cars that has been modified especially for trucks.

Cameras installed at four points on top of the truck carriage take images of what’s around the vehicle. These images are displayed on a high-mount monitor installed in the upper part of the cab interior, and help convey to the driver information about the exterior situation.

The images displayed switch automatically according to the situation. In drive mode, for example, Rearview Mirror View displays the same image as a rearview mirror would. The reverse mode, Top View – helpful in parking situations – displays what you would see if you were looking down from the top of the vehicle.

Further, Roof View displays images from the top of the back of the vehicle and enables the driver to check for overhead clearance, while Rear View displays images from the back of the vehicle and helps identify any obstructions behind the vehicle. When operating the turn lever to turn left or right, the Side View displays images around the sides from the front to the back of the vehicle and is especially handy for preventing possible collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians.

Nissan and Yamato Transport Begin Test Drives of 100 Percent Electric Refrigerator Trucks

Monday, January 28th, 2013

130124-01-01 Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. will conduct test drives of the ATLAS F24 Refrigerator Truck by Li-ion Battery for a one-year period starting this month, in cooperation with Yamato Transport Co., Ltd., headquartered in Chuo-ku, Tokyo.

This vehicle is the first truck in the world to sustain continued operation of its refrigerator and chiller compartments through a dedicated lithium-ion battery system during small cargo delivery runs. The lithium-ion battery system installed on the vehicle was developed by 4R Energy Corporation.

This system places no burden on the car engine, so improvements in fuel efficiency are expected. In addition, the output of the refrigeration equipment is not influenced by the number of revolutions of the car engine. This makes it easy to manage the temperature of the refrigerator and chiller compartments, and contributes to improvements in quality management for the products to be delivered.

Even when the engine is switched off during delivery, there is sufficient battery capacity to ensure stable operation of the refrigerator and chiller compartments for long periods.

Nissan has customized the specifications of the ATLAS F24 Refrigerator Truck to match the needs of Yamato Transport’s services, and will provide this vehicle on loan to Yamato Transport as a monitor vehicle. Yamato Transport will utilize this monitor vehicle for its operations in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, and verify the practicality of the vehicle with Cool TA-Q-BIN and other operations.

The standard model of the ATLAS F24 Refrigerator Truck by Li-ion Battery is scheduled to go on sale in Japan in summer 2013.

Nissan Corporate Vice President Hideto Murakami, responsible for the Global LCV Business Unit, said, “The ATLAS F24 Refrigerator Truck by Li-ion Battery is the world’s first truck that is able to offer continuous operation of its refrigerator and chiller compartments, without using the engine, through a lithium-ion battery power system.

Hino Releases “Proshift 6″ Automated Manual Transmission In 500 Series Models

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

Hino Motor Sales Australia has released the production version of its new ProShift automated manual transmission (AMT), fitted to selected variants of its 500 Series medium-duty truck range. The new six-speed fully automated manual transmission – named “ProShift 6″ – is initially available as an option on FC 1022 and FD 1124 variants of the Hino 500 Series.

The Hino designed and manufactured ProShift 6 transmission has been developed to combine the favourable fuel economy and durability of a manual transmission with automatic transmission ease-of-operation. ProShift 6-equipped models feature a two-pedal only driveline – there is no clutch pedal – with mechanical clutch operation controlled by the on-board computer and shift actuator.

According to Hino Australia, the ProShift 6 automated manual transmission can deliver operators a fuel consumption reduction of 10-15 per cent when compared with an identical vehicle fitted with a torque-converter type automatic transmission. Hino Australia Divisional Manager Product Strategy, Marketing and Dealer Development, Alex Stewart, said Hino has developed the ProShift transmission line in response to the emerging needs of medium-duty truck operators in Australia.

Hino’s Australian operation, in conjunction with Hino Motors Limited Japan, conducted extensive research, engineering development and durability evaluation prior to launching the ProShift 6 transmission locally, Mr Stewart said. By 2015 we are expecting automated manual transmission and torque-converter type automatic transmission equipped models (combined) to account for more than 40 per cent of all medium duty trucks sold in Australia.

Operators are trending towards these transmissions as metropolitan and outer-urban delivery route congestion grows. Hino’s ProShift range eases fatigue by reducing the impact of heavy traffic on the driver while providing the operator with the benefit of reduced fuel consumption and maintenance costs, he said.

Hino now offers AMT variants of all three categories of trucks in Australia – in addition to the ProShift 6-equipped FC and FD 500 Series variants, 300 Series Hybrid models are fitted with the ProShift 5 AMT and 700 Series models can be optioned with a ProShift 16 transmission. The addition of the ProShift AMT also completes a 500 Series transmission trifecta – manual transmissions, torque-converter automatic transmissions and AMTs can be optioned on selected variants in the 500 Series range.
