CADILLAC INTRODUCES THE GROUNDBREAKING SUPER CRUISE™

October 26th, 2020 by

Cadillac has just changed the game. The 2018 Cadillac CT6 will feature its revolutionary Super Cruise™ technology so that Peoria area drivers can cruise with ease. Super Cruise™ is the industry’s first true hands-free driving technology that is made for the highway. While there are other driver technologies on the market, none are made like this one. Cadillac has made the Super Cruise™ with a driver attention system and precision LiDAR map data to make sure drivers are safe and confident behind the wheel.

So, what does Super Cruise™ bring to each and every drive? Well, this type of technology is great for long-distance drives and even daily commutes. The hands-free capabilities help drivers access their navigation system, radio, phone, and much more, all while keeping motorists safe.

“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 driver attention system uses innovative technologies designed to keep drivers safe when Super Cruise™ is in operation. By using a small camera on the top of the steering column, tiny infrared lights track the head position of the driver to see where they are looking. If a Peoria area Cadillac driver looks away and diverts their attention from the road, they will be prompted to return their attention to the road. No worries though, as Super Cruise™ will continue to steer if the driver does not return their attention right away. This is different from other driver assist features, as they only rely on steering wheel input and warning messages.

“American drivers travel twice as many miles on urban and suburban highways as they do on rural roads,” Walkup said. “Super Cruise™ allows hands-free driving and operates only within the environment where it has the most benefit. While it is technically possible for the technology to drive hands-free on other kinds of streets and roads, we feel strongly that this targeted approach is the best to build consumer and regulatory confidence and enthusiasm for advanced mobility.”

Although on-board cameras, GPS, and radar sensors all go into this groundbreaking technology, drivers should still be careful while out on the road. Safety technologies can help keep drivers and their passengers protected, but they must watch out for themselves first.
