This will be followed by enhancing ProPILOT to automate multilane driving on highways and managing vehicle destinations. A pilot program for that will begin in Japan within twelve months. This will support infotainment services, as well as a single communication mechanism to facilitate updates over the air for all vehicles. By the early 2020s, Nissan aims to provide commercial services directly to customers.
