Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving system has been a hit, with more than 120,000 vehicles featuring the technology sold globally. The availability of ProPILOT Assist is now set to expand to additional models, including the Nissan Rogue Sport in the U.S. and the Qashqai in Canada, beginning in late 2018.
The Rogue and Rogue Sport are Nissan’s top-selling vehicles in the U.S. The technology will also be on the new 2019 Altima sedan.
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.
The technology 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 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.
We recently sampled the system on the 2018 Rogue and came away incredibly impressed!
