What is Nissan's ProPILOT Assist?
The ProPILOT Drive Assist is similar to advanced adaptive cruise control. Contrary to popular misconceptions, the ProPILOT isn’t an autonomous driving technology. Instead, ProPILOT only helps the driver maintain greater control over the drive, have the right speed, and remain alert as he/she drives long distances. ProPILOT technology uses a combination of state-of-the-art sensors and cameras to assess all the things around the car. Then, it performs three very important tasks:
- Alerts the driver about the distance between his/her car and other cars in front and behind.
- Helps the driver maintain a constant speed without accidentally slowing or speeding.
- Automatically applies the brakes when the vehicle in front is too close.
The sensors in the car provide information, such as the dimensions of the vehicles around the Nissan car and the presence of any stationary objects on the highway. The camera identifies lane markers and also provides the ProPILOT with visual cues, such as start/stop of another vehicle and the vehicle’s speed. Through this, it will help drivers remain alert and mindful during the entire commute on the highway.
HANDS-OFF DRIVING WILL SOON BE A REALITY
Nissan recently announced that they would release ProPILOT 2.0 in their brand new Nissan Skyline variant. The latest version of the ProPILOT will contain innovations that will allow drivers to drive completely hands-free, making the car truly autonomous.
To use this new suite of features, the driver will need to input a predefined route into the ProPILOT system. Once the car reaches the highway, the autonomous driving feature is activated. The car then controls itself, helping it maneuver, change lanes, and exit the highway. Once off the highway, the control returns to the driver.
