The new Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans, as well as the Escalade SUV, were the first to “test” the company’s updated track autopilot. The proprietary autonomous control system Super Cruise will teach you how to adapt and more accurately control the speed of the vehicle.
Now autopilot allows you to move on high-speed highways without the participation of the driver. After improvement, its capabilities will expand. The system will learn to change lane independently. To activate it, just turn on the indicator, and wait for the right moment, which the electronics will independently determine.
To achieve the desired result, Cadillac developers had to make adjustments to the autopilot algorithms and update the sensors at the rear of the car. Performing maneuvers, the autopilot relies on the data of the lidar, sensors and cameras. Information for the driver is displayed on the dashboard, including warnings about the need to take control. Also, Cadillac engineers improved the autopilot’s performance at junctions and corners, updated software and simplified the process of activating the system.
The group of journalists and shareholders of the company was the first to experience the work of the updated Super Cruise complex. In September 2017, Cadillac arranged a rally for them from New York to Los Angeles. Cars drove part of the route on autopilot.
