A Closer Look at Nissan ProPILOT Assist


A couple of years ago, Nissan first introduced ProPILOT Assist advanced safety technologies, which in just the last two years has done so much for keeping drivers and passengers safe (and, in many instances, keeping insurance premiums low). Already available on 120,000 Nissan models around the world, the automaker recently announced that they plan to expand their use of the technology to additional Nissan models, including the Nissan Altima and Nissan Rogue Sport here in the U.S.


"ProPILOT Assist is an iconic technology for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan's vision of how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society," said Philippe Klein, Nissan chief planning officer. "Its acceptance by consumers has been beyond expectations, and we're pleased to expand its availability to more popular models such as Nissan Altima, Nissan X-Trail and Nissan Rogue Sport."


Currently, ProPILOT Assist includes assisted steering, breaking and accelerating during single-lane highway driving, but engineers have loftier goals for the next four years. Within two years, Nissan hopes to develop assisted steering, braking, and accelerating during multi-lane highway driving, and within four years the hope is that they can push those capabilities to city driving. Obviously the long-term goal is to make it physically impossible for an automobile to get into an accident because of advanced safety technologies. Undergoing these upgrades and adding more models is a fine start.
