ProPilot is a system that encompasses a full range of driver assistance technologies, meaning you can press a button and have a number of systems swing into place. While it8217;s not designed to be totally autonomous, it will keep you in lane and maintain a safe distance from the car in front, reacting to changes in speed on the road.
ProPilot will bring the car to a complete halt, and then resume driving again if that stop is for less than 3 seconds. It8217;s a system designed to assist with motorway driving as well as stop-start driving in traffic, although you still need to keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel at all times.
It uses a combination of cameras and radar to identify the traffic conditions and other vehicles and is able to steer the car around corners, keeping in the middle of the correct lane when on the motorway.
Systems like ProPilot can make stop-start motoring less tiresome for the driver, being able to control the car in slow moving traffic, the sort of thing you might encounter in a traffic jam. As it8217;s very much an evolution of adaptive cruise control, it8217;s also great for long distance motorway driving.
