Cadillac is showing off its new Super Cruise autonomous driving technology by using it to “drive” from coast to coast.
Super Cruise takes adaptive cruise control to another level by allowing people to drive mostly hands-free along 130,000 miles of North American freeways. Super Cruise uses driver monitoring, precision LiDAR map data and GPS to take the stress out of long drives and requires drivers to be ready to intervene if needed, but the system takes care of speed, braking and steering to keep the car in its lane.
Our own Detroit Bureau Editor Craig Cole is joining Cadillac with a Super Cruise-equipped CT6 on the leg from Memphis, Tennessee, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and he did a live broadcast explaining the technology and showing it in action.
Try not to get freaked out when his hands aren’t on the wheel! Watch our live broadcast from our Facebook page below:
