Cadillac started testing auto-pilot for cars
The luxury department of General Motors conducts final testing of the automatic control driving on public roads. Cadillac engineers have already tested Super Cruise technology in real situations to adjust the system where it is necessary.
Super Cruise technology provides semi-autonomous driving capabilities on the highway even in bumper-to-bumper traffic. The key to this is the use of lane-centering technology that uses forward-looking cameras to detect lane markings, together with GPS map data to detect curves and other characteristics in the road. Unfortunately, the new technology is limited by external factors such as weather conditions and the visibility of lane markings.
We are expectin, Cadillac models will be equipped with the new system in 2015. Meanwhile, the first car getting Super Cruise technology will be Mercedes-Benz S-Classe of the next generation. The premiere of the W222 model is scheduled in May, 15. In addition, autonomous control system is also being developed by BMW, Volkswagen and Volvo.
