Nissan ProPILOT Assist Ready For US Launch

July 24th, 2017 by

An innovative driver-assist technology is ready for deployment in the United States. ProPILOT Assist, a hands-on-wheel technology that paves the way for autonomous driving, will be available to customers later this year, according to Nissan.

ProPILOT Assist combines Steering Assist and Intelligent Cruise Control for use in both light and heavy flowing traffic.

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (July 21, 2017) – Earlier this week, for the first time on public roads in the U.S., Nissan put media behind the wheel to experience its ProPILOT Assist technology, which will be available to customers later this year. ProPILOT Assist reduces the hassle of stop-and-go driving by helping control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane highway driving.

This technology isn’t a “self-driving” feature, rather it is “hands-on” driver assistance technology. ProPILOT Assist reduces the hassles of stop-and-go driving by helping manage acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane highway driving, Nissan reports.

Nissan’s announcement comes on the heels of media members being allowed to test out the technology. The innovation underwent 50,000 miles of testing before being deployed to the media, the company said.
