Nissan recently launched a new Sentra that will come equipped with the brand’s ProPILOT autonomous drive technology. Set to go on sale in late August in Japan, this technology offers convenient and safe autopilot technology behind the wheel.
According to Nissan, this technology is designed for single-lane traffic on the highway. Combining sensors with steering, acceleration, and braking control, drivers will be able to switch on a full automatic mode, easing the driver workload in heavy traffic and on longer commutes. The driver can easily activate and deactivate the system, which is designed to essentially drive itself.
“Nissan will advance its leadership in autonomous drive technology by introduction in each market’s core models, further improving safety and pioneering a new era for the automobile,” said the automaker in a release.
This breakthrough technology is something that other brands have been working on for years. Nissan has finally perfected autonomous driving, making it easier than ever to travel. Although there is no word yet when the system will hit the US, it looks like it could soon be on its way. The goal for Nissan is to reach a zero-emissions and zero-fatalities reality, making mobility cleaner and safer than ever. ProPILOT is just the first step. We can’t wait to see what else Nissan engineers have up their sleeves.
