Cadillac has readied an SRX test vehicle that will preview the American automaker’s focus on self-driving cars.

Details of the test vehicle were unveiled as part of an announcement between GM and Carnegie Mellon University in renewing a five-year agreement. Both parties have agreed “to continue developing technologies that could allow future production vehicles to drive autonomously.”

The SRX test vehicle features sensors seamlessly integrated into the body, which GM believes will be a key differentiator between vehicles being tested today and production models that will be self driven.

Most importantly, the Cadillac SRX test vehicle has similar looks to a run-of-the-mill car that you’d see sitting in a dealership showroom. Cadillac is out to prove that self-driving vehicles won’t have to be outfitted with an assortment of gadgets in order for the technology to work.
