Intelligent Brake Assist with Forward Collision Warning

Laser-guided Safety

Using the system's radar range finder, Forward Collision Warning (FCW)[*] helps alert the driver of a potential collision by providing a visual and audible warning. If the driver doesn't respond, and a collision cannot be avoided, Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA)[*] automatically engages the brakes to help reduce collision speed and impact, helping to mitigate the consequences of the accident.

Predictive Forward Collision Warning

Anticipate the Road Ahead

This world's first system warns the driver of risks that may be obscured from the driver's forward field of view. It can not only sense the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also of a vehicle travelling in front of the preceding one.[*]

Two vehicles ahead

A vehicle slows down suddenly and unexpectedly, triggering a potentially dangerous situation.

Directly in front

The driver reacts to the sudden slowdown by quickly stepping on the brakes, but it may not be enough to prevent a collision.

Infiniti QX80

Because of Predictive Forward Collision Warning, you have already been alerted to the potential risk and can respond accordingly, helping to avoid a collision.[*]

Future Thinking

Lane Departure Prevention

Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)[*] helps keep your vehicle from unintentionally drifting from your lane. The available system utilizes a camera to monitor the distance between the vehicle and lane markings. If the vehicle drifts unintentionally towards the lane markers, the system first sounds an audible warning, then lightly applies selected brakes to help you ease your vehicle back into its lane.

Enhanced Control

Respond to the Unexpected

Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)[*] helps correct oversteer or understeer by applying brake pressure to individual wheels and adjusting the engine's power output. The Traction Control System (TCS) helps enhance rear-wheel grip when accelerating by sensing wheelspin and automatically reducing engine output and/or braking the spinning wheel.

Blind Spot Warning and Blind Spot Intervention System

Safety Beyond
What You See

Infiniti’s intuitive Blind Spot Warning System[*] helps alert the driver to vehicles detected in the blind spot area. An indicator light illuminates if the presence of another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area. If the driver engages the turn signal, the indicator flashes and an audible warning sounds.

The Blind Spot Intervention® System[*] uses sensors to help alert you to a vehicle detected entering the blind spot area in an adjacent lane and helps you avoid it.

Safety Shield

All Things Considered

The Infiniti Safety Shield® concept is our comprehensive approach to safety. The QX80 offers layered technologies to help provide safety and convenience by monitoring conditions, helping you avoid a collision, and helping protect you and your passengers if one occurs.

(Full-Speed Range)[*]

Available technology automatically adjusts speed to adapt to the traffic flow.

Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection[*]

The world’s first Around View® Monitor now with Moving Object Detection gives you a virtual 360° view of your parking environment and provides visual and audible warnings for moving objects within the display image.

Distance Control Assist[*]

Available, industry-first system intuitively helps the driver maintain an appropriate following distance by releasing the throttle and applying brakes during traffic conditions that require frequent braking.

Blind Spot Intervention® and Blind Spot Warning[*]

A world's first technology helps alert the driver, when attempting to change lanes, to the presence of a detected vehicle in the blind-spot area. It also assists the driver in returning the vehicle back toward the center of the lane.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)[*]

Another industry first, available LDW sounds an audible warning if you start to drift out of your lane and LDP lightly applies the appropriate brakes to help you ease back between the lines.

Back-up Collision Intervention[*]

The world's first Back-up Collision Intervention (BCI) system is another significant evolution of driving confidence. Radar and sonar sensors on the side and back of the vehicle help alert the driver of a potential collision with a crossing object while backing up. Should the driver continue moving on a collision course, the brakes will automatically engage.

Predictive Forward Collision Warning[*]

This world's first system warns the driver of risks which that maybe obscured from the driver's view lie beyond the driver's field of view. It can not only sense the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also of a vehicle travelling in front of the preceding one.

Forward Emergency Braking[*]

When the Infiniti first system judges that deceleration is required, it alerts the driver using both a screen display and sound, then generates a force that pushes the accelerator pedal up and smoothly applies partial braking to assist the driver in slowing the vehicle down.

When the system judges that there is the possibility of a collision, it will automatically apply harder braking to help avoid a collision.

Intelligent Brake Assist with Forward Emergency Braking [*]

When the Forward Emergency Braking[*] system judges that you need to slow down, it alerts you with a visual indicator on the instrument Cluster and also an audio cue, while the Intelligent Brake Assist[*] system may automatically apply harder braking to help avoid a collision. If conditions exist where a collision becomes unavoidable, the system automatically engages the brakes to help reduce collision speed and impact, helping to mitigate the consequences of the accident.
