The other star feature is ProPilot Assist, which uses inputs from four cameras, 12 sonar sensors (six front and six rear), and millimeter-wave front radar to maintain speed, lane position, and following distance—and even stop, automatically restarting as long as the stop lasts less than three seconds. Simply put, it lets you take your hands off the steering wheel, briefly, when you might need to. We experienced this system on a test track; engagement is much like any other smart-cruise-control system, with one additional button. Although Nissan is cautious to say that ProPilot is a driving aid and not an autonomous or self-driving mode, it’s a bridge toward that goal. The system scolds you after 10 seconds to put your hands back on the wheel, and it starts slowing after 15 seconds if you don’t; also, full functionality is restricted to a maximum of 62 mph, limiting its value for U.S. freeway driving.
