Nissan ProPilot 2.0 Driver Assistance Debuts
July 22, 2019—Nissan's ProPilot driver assistance system received a few improvements in Japan, though it may be some time before the system is ready for the U.S., according to a report by The Car Connection.
In current cars in the U.S., ProPilot Assist combines the brand's steering assist and adaptive cruise control technologies. ProPilot 2.0, however, offers hands-free driving on the freeway from on-ramp to off-ramp.
In Japan, Nissan will launch the system on the latest Skyline sedan, which is sold as the Infiniti Q50 in the U.S. The system will be able to handle hands-free driving on highways. Japanese regulations require a driver's hands to be on the wheel for overtaking and lane changes, but the human driver does not need to intervene in these instances.
