GM Cadillac Unleashes Super Cruise To Take Down Tesla's Autopilot
The GM Cadillac has unleashed their secret weapon, the Super Cruise, to try and beat Tesla's beloved autopilot. Starting this fall, the new Cadillac CT6 sedan will debut as the first car from GM to include the highly automated driving technology. The car technology has been hotly anticipated as it will give buyers a chance to compare both GM and Tesla advanced vehicles.
First, let's talk exactly how the Super Cruise can revolutionize car technology. The feature is said to be able to allow drivers to take their hands off the wheel during highway driving, much like Teslas. The difference is, GM has reportedly been hard at work developing this new driving system, designing it render the safest car possible.
Per TechCrunch, GM's Cadillac injected with the Super Cruise is said to rival Tesla's autopilot in terms of its accuracy and reliability as the safest vehicle. It was supposed to debut in 2016, but it was pushed to 2017 to give engineers more time to polish its safety features. The Super Cruise technology consists a combination of cameras, sensors, and mapping data that allows it to be highly automated.
According to The Verge, Cadillac has dubbed Super Cruise as “the industry’s first true hands-free driving technology”, which is an obvious shot at Tesla semi-autonomous Autopilot system. However, the Super Cruise won’t allow the driver to get in the backseat and watch the car drive itself. This experiment has been known to be done by some Tesla drivers before the software was updated to require the driver’s hands on the steering wheel.
GM's Cadillac Super Cruise first try on the road is definitely exciting, as buyers stand and watch if the vehicle can actually rival Tesla. With Tesla's recent soar in stock market value, self-driving cars are leading its pack to more investors. It's gotten so popular that Elon Musk has revealed his own plan on making Tesla’s full self-driving technology, which just signaled the start of autonomous races against other companies.
