What is Mitsubishi Mi-Pilot Assist?
Automakers are making a steady stream of new Level 2 driving assistance technologies available to consumers. Typically, they combine adaptive cruise control with lane-centering assistance to make the overall driving experience safer, less stressful, and more confidence-inspiring.
Some work only at lower speeds and are commonly known as traffic-jam assistance. Mazda offers this kind of technology on its turbocharged versions of the Mazda3 and Mazda CX-30, and it operates at speeds up to about 40 mph.
Some work at a full range of everyday speeds and in a hands-free manner on approved highways and are considered Level 2+ semi-autonomous systems. An excellent example of this technology is General Motors Super Cruise.
Most, however, are similar to the new Mitsubishi Mi-Pilot Assist system, operating at a full range of everyday speeds but requiring drivers to keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times.
