Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. has won the RJC Technology of the Year award 2014-2015 for the world-first Direct Adaptive Steering technology equipped on its Skyline sedan in Japan. The award was presented by the Automotive Researchers’ and Journalists’ Conference of Japan (RJC), a nonprofit organization.

The RJC selection committee explained the reason behind Skyline’s winning the award: “Nissan’s Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS), which is equipped on the Skyline 350GT HYBRID in Japan, is a world’s first in next-generation steering technology. The DAS system electronically transmits the driver’s inputs to the car’s wheels through a steering sensor integrated with a compact motor without relying on a steering shaft. It also reduces unnecessary feedback from road surfaces, which helps achieve increased stability. This new technology provides handling performance with a higher level of comfort and safety and a faster, more precise steering response. In addition to its innovative performance, we recognize this technology is an important step forward for the future of autonomous driving.”

Since its launch in February, Skyline has been well-received by customers, with sales exceeding 10,000 units (*1). It was also selected for the RJC Car of the Year‘s 6 BEST 2014-2015 group.
