Watch: Join Us as We 'Drive' Hands-Free With Cadillac Super Cruise
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:
Born and raised in metro Detroit, Craig was steeped in mechanics from childhood. He feels as much at home with a wrench or welding gun in his hand as he does behind the wheel or in front of a camera. Putting his Bachelor's Degree in Journalism to good use, he's always pumping out videos, reviews, and features for AutoGuide.com. When the workday is over, he can be found out driving his fully restored 1936 Ford V8 sedan. Craig has covered the automotive industry full time for more than 10 years and is a member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).
