Nissan has announced it will be updating its ProPilot system for a more advanced autonomous driving experience. The automotive manufacturer will equip its new Skyline with ProPilot 2.0 and will launch this to the Japanese market this year, before moving on to the rest of the world.

The new system will use a whole host of front cameras, AVM (Around View Monitoring) cameras and a sonar radar, as well as side and front radar and a system which will know if the driver is not paying enough attention. To comply with Japanese laws, drivers will have to be aware and ready to intervene in potential accidents and they will also have to hold the steering wheel while the car switches lanes autonomously.

ProPilot 2.0 will work through the GPS system and will set the driver’s desired speed, guiding itself off-ramp onto the highway, and back on-ramp, with the attention of the driver putting their hands on the steering while as it maneuvers. This is a considerable step up from Nissan’s first ProPilot system — which performed closer to a semi-self driven adaptive cruise control function — as it will now allow users to be considerably more hands-free while the car maps out the road in front of it in 3D.
