Demonstrating your commitment to innovation, General Motors confirmed that as of 2020 the models of Cadillac will be the first of the group to have the Super cruise, a semi autonomous driving system for handling vehicles on highways.
Super Cruise operation is based on map data LiDAR, with high-precision GPS, a state-of-the-art driver assistance system and a network of cameras and sensors. A plan is required OnStar with emergency services, so a driver can drive hands-free on routes in the United States and Canada.
The Cadillac brand introduced the system in 2017 V2V (information exchange between two vehicles to improve traffic and avoid accidents) in the CTS Sedan using dedicated short-range communications technology (DSRC).
In 2020 this technology will evolve into a system that will allow the exchange of information not only with other vehicles, but with cyclists, pedestrians, devices and the road network itself (V2X system for its acronym in English). Thus, vehicles are alerted to adverse road conditions, traffic conditions, and other information that helps prevent accidents.
The announcement of the use of Super Cruise was made Mark Reus, Vice President of Global Product, Purchasing and Supply Chain of General Motors, in the framework of the last Annual Conference of the Intelligent Transportation Society from Detroit.
