Car lovers can’t stop talking about Cadillac Super Cruise™, an innovative new technology that is changing the way cars drive. Super Cruise™ is the world’s first truly hands-free driving system. It can only be used on limited-access freeways that are separated from opposing traffic, though many are hoping that the system is soon able to work in all conditions.
How does it work? According to Cadillac, Super Cruise™ activates several existing driver assist technologies in order to control the vehicle and keep you safe. For instance, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is turned on to monitor the cars in front of you, and Forward Collision System is set to “alert” and “brake.” Cameras and radar are activated, and there’s even a system to ensure that the driver appears attentive. Essentially, you turn on all the intelligent safety systems, keep yourself alert, and let the car do the driving.
Cadillac has proprietary head-movement-tracking technology to make sure that you appear alert at all times. Super Cruise™ doesn’t perform all aspects of driving, and it doesn’t do everything that a driver can or should do. That’s why it will alert you if you should need to take control of the vehicle. Super Cruise™ also won’t do things like change lanes or operate around road obstacles like construction.
Nevertheless, as long as you’re on a limited-access freeway, Super Cruise™ will provide an enjoyable and safe experience like never before. At Trent Cadillac, we can’t wait to see what Cadillac develops next.
Super Cruise is Cadillac’s answer to similar Autopilot systems. It lets the driver safely do other tasks while driving, such as make phone calls. The car still needs driver feedback in certain situations, though, so it uses a camera to monitor your eyeline and alerts you if it detects that you’re looking away from the road for too long.
Using a suite of sophisticated driver assist technologies, the Super Cruise system on the CT6 will monitor the position and speed of other vehicles to decrease speed and engage the brakes, depending on traffic conditions.
Drivers will only be able to use Super Cruise on the highway, which simplifies the system since it doesn’t need to detect pedestrians or traffic lights. Still it works at high speeds on clear highways as well as in bumper-to-bumper traffic.
The new Super Cruise technology will further set the CT6 apart from other entries in the luxury sedan segment and boost its popularity among drivers looking for the latest driver assist and self-driving technologies.
