PROPILOT, NISSAN’S SINGLE-LANE AUTONOMOUS DRIVING TECHNOLOGY

By  |

ProPILOT is Nissan Motor Co.’s single-lane autonomous driving technology. Once activated, ProPILOT can automatically control the distance between the vehicle and the preceding vehicle using a speed preset by the driver (between approximately 30 km/h and 100 km/h); it also keeps the vehicle centered in its lane. If a car in front stops, the ProPILOT system will automatically apply the brakes to bring the vehicle to a full stop if necessary. After coming to a full stop, the vehicle can remain in place even if the driver’s foot is off the brake pedal. When ready to resume driving, ProPILOT is activated when the driver touches the switch again or lightly presses the accelerator. All these functions can significantly reduce the driver’s stress when driving on the highway in all kinds of traffic conditions.
