Nissan ProPILOT Assist is safety technology that takes the stress out of your commute, controlling your speed based on the traffic around you while you just worry about the steering. This groundbreaking technology is available across a range of Nissan vehicles, including the 2021 Nissan Rogue and Rogue Sport, the fully electric Nissan LEAF hatchback, and the Nissan Altima. You’ll find the latest vehicles equipped with Nissan ProPILOT Assist at Galesburg Nissan in Galesburg, Illinois.
How ProPILOT Assist Works
Nissan ProPILOT Assist uses cameras and radar systems from other driver assist technologies, such as Automatic Emergency Braking, and brings them together to recognize lane markers, measure the distance between your vehicle and vehicles ahead of you, keep the vehicle centered in the lane, and more.
ProPILOT Assist also offers an available Navi-link system. If your vehicle is equipped with a navigation system, Navi-link syncs with that system to access its highway maps. This gives ProPILOT Assist more information about the road ahead, making for more accurate and safer driving.
How to Use ProPILOT Assist
The ProPILOT Assist system is easy to use. All you have to do is press the ProPILOT Assist button on your steering wheel, then accelerate or decelerate to your preferred speed. Hit the button that says “Set,” and the system will engage.
The system will then look for lane markers on the road, and once it detects them, the icons on the dashboard will light up. After that, the vehicle will automatically increase and decrease the speed based on traffic conditions. It will even use Steering Assist to help you stay within your lane.
ProPILOT Assist 2.0
Nissan ProPILOT Assist 2.0 is an even more innovative version of ProPILOT Assist that will be available starting with the 2021 Nissan ARIYA, a fully electric compact SUV.
ProPILOT Assist 2.0 will not only let drivers engage an intelligent cruise control system but also drive in a single lane hands-free. ProPILOT Assist 2.0 uses advanced steering assist technology to keep your vehicle steady in your lane while you sit back and relax.
