Re: Cadillac Announces "Super Cruise™"

I woud like a loaded Continental Black Label for M-F commutes and an ATS-V for fun on weekends when I'm not taking the Mustang out.

These forums sometimes make me feel alone in that regard.

I, however, don't particularly care for autonomous tech. I like driving.

Re: Cadillac Announces "Super Cruise™"

Agreed, it is a system I would hardly use.....but, after spending 22 hours driving back from South Florida, I was recently reminded just how useful it could be.

With regards to the Cadillac safety system, called driver attention system, I think that is key to this whole system. Otherwise, all autonomous cars use maps and radar, sensors, cameras, etc. But I am curious just how well it engages a driver, who let's say is falling asleep. Will it continue to prompt, until it shuts off....which is probably when the sleeping driver needs it most? Will it slowly pull over? These are the kind of unknowns that can make the difference in a safe useful system.

That's something I've found ironic.....if these systems detect you're dozing off or something, they shut off.....which seems like the opposite of what they should do. As you said, if someone is falling asleep, would it be good for the system to shut off and be at the "mercy" of the sleepy driver?

I would encourage a bit of research into the multiple levels of warning the system utilizes.

I'm sure that the driver monitoring system stops the system early in the drowsy stage,
unlike Vacation with Chevy Chase sound asleep at the wheel, coasting into a motel car park..

Re: Cadillac Announces "Super Cruise™"

Cadillac just released this short clip on using super cruise. I had wondered if it would autonomously change lanes to pass. Seems not. I bet it could but Cadillac likely doesn't want to push autonomous driving too far, too fast. Just ease consumers in slowly like getting into cold water.

Re: Cadillac Announces "Super Cruise™"

Cadillac's Self-Driving System May Be the Smartest Yet
Wired
- Alex Davies - 06.29.17 - and another video


If you’re wondering why you don’t have a self-driving car yet, you should know that you’re part of the problem. Maybe even most of the problem...

Cadillac Super Cruise First Drive: Trusting the machine
SlashGear
- Chris Davies - Jun 29, 2017 - and yet another video


It was, conservatively, 90 seconds before I was satisfied Cadillac’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system wasn’t going to kill me. By that point, a combination of cameras, super-accurate maps, and a fancier-than-usual GPS system were keeping me dead-center at 65 mph
on California’s 280, headed north toward San Francisco. As the CT6 eased its way around the corners, I spent a few moments considering that the car of the future apparently communicates not with the voice of Mr Feeny from Boy Meets World, but with a glowing green steering wheel instead...
