Cadillac has always been a pioneer when it comes to technology. Now, the American luxury carmaker has introduced a brand-new innovation that is sure to change the industry — Cadillac Super Cruise ™.
“Super Cruise™ is a more technologically advanced hands-free driving solution, which in terms of capability, integration, and validation is uniquely focused on customer convenience and safety,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president. “Cadillac’s philosophy is to elevate driving. Super Cruise™ enables safe, simple hands-free driving for the highway.
The Super Cruise™ technology is the industry’s first-ever hands-free driving technology for the highway. This tech uses two systems to make sure you are confident when using it — a driver attention system and precision LiDAR map data.
The former uses a small camera on the top of the steering condom to track your head position, letting you know when you need to return your eyes to the road. The latter system provides you with real-time data to help govern your steering, so you will be in control around curves and up hills.
These two systems work with the CT6 model’s cameras and radar sensors, allowing the driver assistance experience to be as accurate as possible.
Currently, this technology is available on the 2018 Cadillac CT6. Cadillac has plans to expand the technology’s availability to all Cadillac models at the beginning of 2020. Afterwards, this technology will make its way to other General Motors brands.
