The Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 4x4 Paris-Dakar (953) and Walter Röhrl: Two legends of Porsche's 1980s rally programme come together for the first time in the perfect alpine playground.
The new Nissan Qashqai - advanced driver assistance system ProPILOT
The new Qashqai is equipped with the next generation of the assistance system ProPILOT. It is called "ProPILOT with Navi-Link" and offers even more driver support - in more situations than before. The system reduces fatigue and stress on the driver and is also intuitive to use. ProPILOT with Navi-Link can accelerate and decelerate the vehicle to a set speed within a lane on motorways. In heavy stop-and-go traffic, the vehicle is braked to a standstill if necessary. If the Qashqai stands still for less than three seconds and the vehicles in front start moving, it automatically starts moving again. The steering system and camera continuously record the vehicle's position and keep it within the lane. The preset speed is maintained, but also a safe distance from the vehicle in front. In the new Nissan Qashqai, the system is now able to adapt the speed to additional external circumstances, such as a temporary speed limit that is determined using traffic sign recognition and data from the navigation system. In such a case, the system will automatically decelerate the Qashqai and accelerate it back to the previous speed as soon as the limitation is lifted
With the optional augmented reality head-up display in the Q4 e-tron, Audi is taking a huge step forward in display technology. It reflects important information via the windshield on two separate levels, the status section and the augmented reality (AR) section. The information provided by some of the assist systems and the turning arrows of the navigation system as well as its starting points and destinations are visually superimposed in the corresponding place on the real-life outside world as content of the AR section and displayed dynamically. They appear to be floating at a physical distance of roughly ten meters (32.8 ft) to the driver. Depending on the situation, they appear considerably further ahead in some cases. The driver can understand the displays very quickly without being confused or distracted by them, and they are extremely helpful in poor visibility conditions.
