General Motors has revealed that its “hands-free” advanced driver-assist system (ADAS), Super Cruise, is going to cover 400,000 miles across North America by the end of 2022. US regulators and legislators are scrutinizing advanced driver-assist systems since there is a lack of regulations around the technology. At the moment, Super Cruise is only available on select highway systems approved by General Motors.
Super Cruise was first used when it was launched in 2017 with the Cadillac CT6. Many components and sensors allow the vehicle to drive “hands-free,” including live GPS, cameras, sensors, and lidar mapping data. These features together assist drivers and can change lanes as well.
General Motors’ rival, Tesla, has a different self-driving system that can be used anywhere there are driving markers. The system can be activated or deactivated on almost any highway or road. Later this year, though, General Motors will launch its new and improved Super Cruise so Chevy Silverado, GMC Hummer EV, and Cadillac Lyriq drivers can use the Super Cruise system on non-divided highways. General Motors is focusing on its Super Cruise systems as it moves forward in producing electric vehicles.
Mario Maiorana, Super Cruise chief engineer, told reporters during a briefing, “Super Cruise is really helping redefine vehicle ownership and it’s part of our wider path to autonomy at General Motors.”
