Nissan sells a lot of Qashqais, but it also sells a lot of cameras. The company is boasting that it has installed 1.4 million cameras in Qashqais since 2014.
Each vehicle that features Nissan's Around View Monitor system has 4 cameras in it. There is also one more camera that is installed in the windscreen."Unlike rival systems that rely on radar systems to monitor movement around the car, all three elements of Nissan’s Safety Shield work using data from the rear-view AVM camera providing drivers with exceptional visibility and protection. The safety of our passengers is the number one priority and Nissan’s proactive approach to safety technology is there to assist drivers at all times," said Safety Shield senior engineer Christopher Parke.
Nissan believes that it will sell 10 million car cameras by 2020. So when you think about it, Nissan is also a camera company. Nissan is already developing new cameras that will be fitted to headlights and stream footage to the Internet. Those cameras can be seen in the Gripz concept.
