Japanese auto manufacturer Nissan Motor has unveiled its new self-driving technology 'ProPilot,' which assists the driver in maintaining speed during heavy traffic, changing lanes, and other driving maneuvers on a highway.

Nissan's 2016 model Serena will be the first to have the 'ProPilot' technology, which is made possible by relatively simple technologies including a front-facing camera, an electronic parking break, and a 7-inch display monitor inside the car.

Kiwamu Aoyanagi is the manager of Nissan's advanced driver assistance systems engineering department.

"As part of the first step in pursuing our self-driving technology called ProPilot, we are implementing the system into the Serena model. This is part of the company's roadmap, which in 2016 will begin implementing ProPilot that works within a single lane on highways."

By 2018, Nissan aims to have ProPilot be able to operate in multiple lane changes, and by 2020, to be able to turn left and right at intersections.

In order to activate Serena's new self-driving mode, the driver must first turn on ProPilot, drive at the appropriate speed, then press the set switch. The car will have then detected the car in front, and will maintain the appropriate distance while maintaining speed.
