Autonomous Drive Technology Roadmap
ProPILOT was introduced into SERENA, X-TRAIL, Nissan LEAF in Japan, Rogue in US in 2017, and the Qashqai will be in Europe in 2018. A multi-lane autonomous driving technology will enable automatic lane changes on highways and is planned for introduction in 2018 while autonomous driving on urban roads and in intersections is planned for launch in 2020.

Key technologies for 2017 Prototype
The prototype's artificial intelligence uses input from 12 sonars, 12 cameras, nine millimeter-wave radars, six laser scanners and a high-definition map to analyze complex scenarios in real time and navigate smoothly through challenging city conditions – such as crossing busy intersections. These hardware upgrades, along with software improvements, also ensure smooth transitions when encountering obstacles in the road. This results in a human-like driving feel that gives passengers peace of mind.
