What is Nissan ProPILOT Assist?



Nissan ProPILOT Assist is the most recent innovation by Nissan, designed to help drivers stay on the road while driving. The technological marvel can be used on the highway as well as while navigating traffic during rush hour.


How Does Nissan ProPILOT Assist Work?

The ProPILOT Assist uses a front radar sensor along with a front-facing camera located behind the rearview mirror. It keeps the car stable during curving roads on the highway and maintains adequate separation from the cars ahead of it while in the city.

The ProPILOT Assist can be engaged with a button mounted on the steering wheel. The driver can input their desired speed and the distance they would like to maintain from the car in front of them. 

Once enabled, the ProPILOT Assist provides steering inputs, like when to change lanes and lane centering. If the software detects that the driver has transferred one or both hands while driving, it will deliver a series of audio and visual alerts. 

If these alerts are ignored, the Nissan will nudge the brakes, causing the vehicle to a halt. Simultaneously, Nissan will turn on the hazard lights to alert other drivers on the road.

Features of Nissan ProPILOT Assist

The Nissan ProPILOT Assist comes with a variety of features specially designed to help the driver navigate any stretch of the road.


  • The driver assist combines different functions of the car. This includes its acceleration, braking, and steering functions. This helps the driver in case they experience drowsiness behind the wheel.
