In 2020, General Motors is hoping to have released “hands-free driving” technology on the market. They are already going ahead with the plan and now testing this new technology with real-world drivers. Cadillac will be the first car to test this new system. This “hands-free driving” will be called “Super Cruise.” As stated by John Capp, GM director of Global Active Safety Electronics and Innovations, in a press release, “Super Cruise is designed to give the driver the ability of hands-free driving when the system determines it is safe to do so.” Before the system is introduced to the market, it must be put through severe testing. This technology will include features like radar, ultrasonic sensors, and cameras that will be used to determine/control driving speed and distances from moving to stationary objects at all angles and sides of the vehicle. They are seeing how the “Super Cruise” will handle situations like real-world traffic and how the drivers will interact with the new driving system.
