While self-driving cars are still a work in progress, semi-autonomous features are beginning to make their way to the market. Cadillac plans to bring the Super Cruise available on all car models come 2020.
The Super Cruise, first seen on the CT6 sedan, uses LiDAR map data, sensors, GPS, and real-time cameras to control the vehicle's steering, braking, and acceleration for an autonomous cruise control mode. This would allow the driver to take their hands off the wheel on highways, as the vehicle will maintain speed and direction to stay in the lane.
While they can be hands-free, drivers still need to pay attention to the road. The vehicle tracks the driver's face and eyes to determine if they're no longer looking at the road, prompting them to do so if not. If the driver remains unresponsive, the vehicle will come to a controlled stop.
The brand is looking to make this feature standard on all Cadillac vehicles by 2020, extending into other GM brands afterward.
