Nissan ProPILOT Assist Ready For US Launch
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.
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.
