ProPILOT Assist is a hands-on driver-assist system that helps drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead. Nissan’s exclusive ProPILOT Assist technology was originally introduced in 2016 in the Japanese-market Nissan Serena minivan. Since then, the technology has spread globally to vehicles such as the 100% electric new Nissan LEAF, the European-market Qashqai, the Japanese-market X-Trail and the U.S.-market Rogue. ProPILOT Assist will also be featured on the upcoming all-new 2019 Nissan Altima sedan. Additional vehicles will adopt the technology in coming years, expanding to 20 models and 20 markets by the end of FY2022, as part of the company’s mid-term plan, Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022.”ProPILOT Assist is an iconic technology for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan’s vision of how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society,” said Philippe Klein, Nissan’s chief planning officer. “Its acceptance by consumers has been beyond expectations, and we’re pleased to expand its availability to more popular models such as Altima, X-Trail and Rogue Sport.”
About ProPILOT Assist
ProPILOT Assist is the foundation for the autonomous vehicles of the future, helping drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and a set distance to the vehicle ahead. It’s all done with a simple, intuitive two-button operation. To activate the system, the driver simply pushes the ProPILOT Assist button on the steering wheel and then sets the Intelligent Cruise Control when the desired speed is reached.
ProPILOT Assist is designed to be more intuitive and user-friendly compared with other driver-assist technologies. It can potentially help lessen driver fatigue and create a more confident driving experience – especially for drivers who experience heavy highway traffic on a daily basis.
