Re: Cadillac Announces "Super Cruise™"

Definitely heavy handed on enforcing driver input which is actually one of the greater technical challenges of enhanced autonomy features like this. I would certainly like a system that was simply better at staying in the lines, right now Ford's lane-keeping is severely under developed (at least in my MKX), it gets easily confused by bends in the road and will start tugging at the wheel as I'm steering through them. It also likes to shut-off without warning and has a hard time seeing lane makers far too frequently. Since the system doesn't warn you clearly, you also never really know if it's actually working unless you're looking down at the tiny graphics on the instrument panel. There are many other areas in which Ford's system is lacking in really obvious ways such as the blind-spot detection...the LED light needs to be on the inside of he cabin or just a larger unique shape (like on Chryslers) because the small and dim amber dot can often be glared out or mistaken for other reflections. I know most of these systems are designed to scale and cost but Lincoln should correct some of these crappy designs for their own cars.

^^The lane centering on Cadillac's SC system is one of the innovations that most excites me about this...I wonder if Cadillac can bring a simpler version of the lidar/gps lane centering to non-autonomous cars for the lane keeping to avoid that lame and awful ping-ponging of other systems.

Re: Cadillac Announces "Super Cruise™"

I seldom use roads which could be considered even remotely well-marked, and the ones I do tend to have gaps from the constant utility/phone/internet cables being worked on.
