During the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan invited media from around the world to experience ProPILOT 2.0 – the world’s first driver assistance system to combine navigated highway driving with hands-off single-lane driving capabilities.
First seen on the new Nissan Skyline, the system is designed for on-ramp to off-ramp highway driving. ProPILOT 2.0 engages with the vehicle’s navigation system to help maneuver the car according to a predefined route on designated roadways. It can also assist the driver with passing and changing lanes.
Here are some reactions from the media after their test drives.
Disclaimer: Media representatives tried ProPILOT 2.0 on a highway with three lanes in each direction. The hands-off feature is not available on roads with two-way traffic, in tunnels, on winding roads, in tollgate areas, in merging lanes, in areas with a decreasing number of lanes, or in areas where manual control is required. When entering a road section where hands-off driving is not available, the system will alert the driver in advance so that the driver can take manual control of steering.
