The system keeps cars on the road with the help of cameras, GPS, sensors, and mapping technology called LiDAR.
General Motors said that its hands-free driving network, Super Cruise, will be available in some full-size SUVs by the middle of November.
The news comes after the company doubled the Super Cruise road network, which now has more than 400,000 miles of roads in the US and Canada.
The new rules will only apply to full-size SUVs made on or after October 3, 2022. The full list of vehicles includes the 2023 High Country and Premier versions of the Chevrolet Tahoe; the 2023 High Country and Premier versions of the Chevrolet Suburban; the 2023 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade-V; and the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate.
Super Cruise came out in 2017. It’s not a fully self-driving system, so drivers still need to pay attention, but they can take their hands off the wheel. Infrared cameras make sure the driver stays aware of what’s going on on the road since they could be asked at any time to take control of the car again. The system uses cameras, GPS, sensors, and LiDAR mapping technology to keep cars on the road. Adaptive Cruise Control keeps cars at a safe speed and distance from other cars on the road.
The company said that existing Super Cruise cars will get updates “over the air” to add the new roads “in the coming months” and “at no extra cost.” They also said that Super Cruise will be available on 22 cars by the end of next year, and Ultra Cruise, which is currently in pre-production, will be available on “certain premium entries” later on.
