The system uses cameras and sensors that suppress acceleration and applies the brakes to parked cars if the driver mistakenly presses hard on the accelerator.

There is a camera on each side of the car with ultrasonic sensors to the front and rear, and the system has been designed to detect parking-space lines, walls and other obstacles around cars and will automatically engage the brakes when the accelerator is pressed in these circumstances. 

The system will become available commercially in Japan this winter in Nissan's Elgrand minivans, but as yet no price has been set. 

Statistics show that an increasing number of elderly drivers are involved in accidents when they step on accelerators instead of brake pedals and I think this to be the way forward.
