New Super Cruise Expansions Coming Later This Year

DETROIT – New vehicles in the General Motors portfolio built on VIP electrical architecture may be seeing a new expansion later this year for Super Cruise-equipped models.

GM says the expansions will come over-the-air and will be accompanied with no additional charge for qualified vehicles.

In addition to the announcement, GM says Super Cruise, the hands-free driving technology, will soon be seeing more road availability expansions. By doubling the Super Cruise road network, the company says hundred of thousands of additional miles can be explored hands-free in the U.S. and Canada.

Super Cruise uses Lidar map data, real time cameras, radars and GPS technology to keep vehicle traveling along lane paths in a hands-free driving experience. “Sensor fusion” allows the systems to work together, creating a sensory field around the vehicle, GM says.

While Super Cruise is currently compatible with interstate highways, the new expansion will allow for it cover many additional state and federal routes as well.

Mario Maioranan, GM chief engineer of Super Cruise, says GM is “all in” when it comes to advanced driver assistance technology.

“We are adding Super Cruise to more vehicles than ever, and on more roads for more customers to experience,” he says. “We are pursuing what we believe to be the most comprehensive path to autonomy in the industry with responsible deployment of automated driving technology like Super Cruise at the core of what we do.”
