Cadillac Expands Super Cruise ADAS Availability

Cadillac plans to expand the availability of its Super Cruise network to a further 70,000 miles of North American highway.

This means Super Cruise, Cadillac’s hands-free driver assistance system, will be available on over 200,000 miles of highway in the US and Canada by the end of 2019.

Super Cruise uses a combination of LiDAR, high-precision GPS data, a driver attention system, radars and cameras to pinpoint exactly the position of the car on the road and its location. The system can handle intersections and some traffic control devices, but Cadillac is keen to mention that in the cases of pedestrian or railroad crossings, stop lights or stop signs, Super Cruise will ask the driver to take back control of the vehicle. The US auto manufacturer also notes that, similar to other driver assistance systems, the driver needs to be alert and have eyes on the road at all times.

2018 and 2019-model Cadillac CT6 owners can get the newly-upgraded system enabled at their local Cadillac dealership. The new maps will be sent over the air later this year. The new 2020 CT6 will also include Super Cruise, as well as the CT5, due to release this year.
