Cadillac to put SuperCruise hands-free driver system in all its cars
Cadillac to install hands-free driver systems
Cadillac will put SuperCruise 'hands-free' driver system on all cars beginning in 2020.
The company’s driver-assistance system is currently on the marquee CT6, allowing drivers to take their hands off the wheel on some freeways.
From 2020, the famous American car manufacturer is going to let a lot more of its drivers take their hands off the wheel.
General Motors' premium brand said that the SuperCruise allows Cadillac drivers to navigate with their hands off the wheel on more than 130,000 miles of freeways in the U.S. and Canada.
The system uses Lidar, radar, cameras, GPS and sensors to control the car, and uses devices like a camera that watches the drivers' eyes to ensure they still pay attention. It is often compared with similar systems, such as Tesla's Autopilot.
Cadillac is known as a higher-end brand for cars but it has struggled in recent years and has largely missed the consumer drift toward crossovers and SUVs. But earlier this year it introduced the XT4, a small SUV.
