Join the Force and Experience the Future for Nissan

 In 2016, Nissan and Lucasfilm, LTD. joined forces on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and introduced the Star Wars branded 2017 Nissan Rogue to the public.  

This year, Nissan and Lucasfilm, LTD. have once again teamed up on a new movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. They are offering Star Wars fans Nissan specials on a number of vehicles like the Rogue. The Technology of the Future is now Within Reach Nissan Intelligent Mobility is a suite of driver-assist technologies that are a lot like the droids in Star Wars; they are designed to assist the pilot manoeuvre through traffic and avoid disasters.  

Features like Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection monitor speed while keeping a safe distance from other vehicles. The system can apply the brakes if necessary and is able to detect pedestrians.   Other features of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility suite include Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Intelligent Lane Intervention.  

Sensors and radars in the BSW system are always monitoring the surrounding traffic. The system sounds an alert should it detect other cars within the blind spot, thus avoiding a collision.  

The RCTA system helps prevent accidents when backing up by checking surrounding traffic and sounding an alert if there is rear cross traffic.ProPILOT Assist is another feature of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility suite of driver's tools.   When automation is needed, the ProPILOT Assist can take over some of the daily driving tasks.

While the Nissan is not an X-Wing Starfighter, both vehicles benefit from the advanced technology that makes driverless piloting possible.   ProPILOT advances the capabilities of the radar, sensors and cameras that Nissan already uses for other safety features like BWS and 'reads' the road ahead. The LDW system is part of this advanced equipment.   If the vehicle starts to drift out of its lane, the LDW will emit a warning sound. Should the warning be ignored, the system can tap the brakes and begin to steer the vehicle back into its lane.  

As the radar reads the road, it determines where the lane markers are and keeps the vehicle within them. ProPILOT is easy to engage; just tap the ProPILOT button on the steering wheel to turn it on and off. When the ProPILOT is engaged, it turns on the Intelligent Cruise Control, which keeps vehicle speed steady as it adjusts to surrounding traffic speed. The system works smoothly in stop and go traffic by keeping pace with traffic.

When under manual power, a driver can lurch forward or slam on their brakes. This eliminates this type of driving and saves money on fuel.   While it is not self-driving, the Steering Assist feature helps by making gentle adjustments when driving to stay within the lines. It can even make gentle turns, as long as the roads are well marked. Steering Assist can take some of the stress out of driving.  

Make a choice between the Resistance and First Order with official Star Wars accessories for Nissan models like the Rogue and Sentra.  Also available are Nissan special offers on financing.  

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on December 15, 2017 at a local Calgary theatre.
