GM’s Super Cruise is world’s first true hands-free system for highway driving

General Motors (GM) puts their Super Cruise technology to the test in a sixteen-state, cross country drive from New York City to Los Angeles using the 2018 Cadillac CT6 driven by key stakeholders and members of the media.

Super Cruise is the latest innovative driver assistance feature by GM, which enables hands-free, driver-assisted operation using a driver attention system and precision LiDAR map data.

“Cadillac is setting new industry standards with ground-breaking driver assistance technologies like Super Cruise, the world’s first true hands-free driving system for the freeway. We are excited to bring Super Cruise, a true testament to Cadillac’s innovative spirit and technical capability, on its first-ever hands-free drive on freeways from coast to coast,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president.
