Cadillac to Produce Self-Driving Vehicle by Mid-Decade

Cadillac plans to build self-driving or ‘semi-autonomous’ cars in the following five years.

The company declared that it already has the technology needed to let cars manage themselves, using the adaptive cruise control and lane centering software. These technologies which are already available on the new Cadillac XTS and ATS models, include forward collision alert, rear automatic breaking, a head up display, side blind zone alert, and a range of other safety systems. By adding cameras, GPS map data, radar, and ultrasonic sensors the self-driving technology could be safely deployed. The company is already testing the technology, called “Super Cruise”, which has the potential to improve driver enjoyment and performance. Cadillac pointed out that it has no desire to take the driver out of the driving equation.

“The primary goal of GM’s autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicle development is safety,” said John Capp, GM director of global active safety electronics and innovation. He said in a press release that autonomous driving systems together with advanced safety systems “could help eliminate the crash altogether by interceding on behalf of drivers before they’re even aware of a hazardous situation.”
