"This video is copyrighted material of Nissan North America, Inc. and should not be copied, edited, or reproduced without the permission of Nissan.



The ProPILOT Assist system is a hands on driver assistance system that provides limited lane-keeping and throttle/brake control assistance for the driver, it is not a self-driving system. It uses an enhanced version of Intelligent Cruise Control, or ICC system, along with a Steering Assist system to help maintain both distance from proceeding vehicles and vehicle lane centering.

The Steering Assist system uses a multi-sensing camera unit installed behind the windshield to monitor the lane markers. If clear, consistent lane marks are present, the Steering Assist provides small steering corrections to help keep your vehicle near the center of the lane while driving. Steering Assist will activate at speeds above approximately 37 miles-per-hour.

When in operation, the Steering Assist indicator, the Steering Assist display, and the lane markers indicator on the vehicle information display turn green and a chime will sound when it initially activates.

When deactivated, these indicators turn gray and a chime sounds twice.

The Lane Departure Prevention, or LDP system will also be active while using the Steering Assist system. If the Steering Assist system cannot maintain the lane and begins to cross over the lane markers, the LDP will provide an audible warning and the lane markers on the visual display will turn yellow and flash. The system will also momentarily apply the brakes to help the driver return the vehicle to the traveling lane.

The enhanced version of ICC uses a radar sensor to monitor the speed of, and distance to, the vehicle in front of you. If the radar sensor detects a slower moving vehicle ahead, the system will reduce the vehicle speed.

To Turn on the ProPILOT Assist system on:
● Push the ProPILOT Assist switch. First a temporary pop-up will display the status of several driver assist technologies, and then the status of the ProPILOT Assist system will appear.
● Now, accelerate or decelerate your vehicle to the desired speed.
● Push the SET switch and release it. The ProPILOT Assist activation indicator and ProPILOT Assist status indicator illuminate.

For vehicles equipped with Rain Sensing Auto Wipers, the wipers may automatically switch to LO or HI. If the auto wipers remain in LO or HI for an extended period of time, steering assist will cancel.

While active, the ProPILOT Assist system monitors the steering wheel to confirm the driver has their hands on the steering wheel. If no hands are detected, the NO HAND ON WHEEL sequence will begin. First, THIS visual warning will be displayed in the vehicle information display. Next, THIS visual warning will flash along with a series of escalating audible alerts, followed by a brake pulsation. If no steering input is still detected an emergency audible alert will sound, the hazard flashers turn on and the vehicle will slowly be brought to stop in the traveling lane. If steering input is detected during any of these warnings, the NO HANDS ON WHEEL sequence will be cancelled and ProPILOT Assist will resume.

If the ProPILOT Assist system malfunctions, it will be turned off automatically. A chime will sound and a warning will appear in the vehicle information display. When a warning light comes on, stop the vehicle in a safe place, turn the engine off, and restart the engine. If the warning continues to illuminate, there may be a malfunction. Although normal driving can be continued, the system should be inspected. It is recommended that you visit a INFINITI retailer for this service.

Using this switch located on the instrument panel, you can turn the Steering Assist ON and OFF.

To enable or disable the Steering Assist:
● Press the MENU button on the control panel,
● TOUCH the DRIVER ASSISTANCE key,
● Now, TOUCH the STEERING ASSIST key,
● Then, TOUCH the ON key to toggle the system ON or OFF.
