Cadillac is embarking on the first-ever hands-free car journey from coast to coast this month using the new Super Cruise feature, according to a post on the Graff Mount Pleasant website.
The feature uses radar technology and a "driver attention" setup to allow the people inside the vehicle to relax while the vehicle automatically centers itself on the lane, the posting said.
Twelve 2018 Cadillac CT6s, each with Super Cruise, will travel from New York using the Super Cruise technology, stopping in a handful of major cities along the way.
“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,” Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen said in the posting. “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.”
The driver attention system used with Super Cruise helps prevent accidents by alerting the driver to traffic and road conditions via indicators on the vehicle display, lights on the steering wheel and audio alerts.
