GM Updating Super Cruise to Add More Automated Features
Unlike Tesla, GM wants to keep the human driver in the loop
GM announced new updates to its Super Cruise active driver assistance system earlier today that the company says will automate even more tasks. Unlike rival Tesla, GM doesn’t couch the advances in terms of self-driving automation, and describes the new features as taking additional stress out of driving.
Starting in 2022, Super Cruise will be able to make automatic lane changes and operate while towing a trailer. Drivers will also be able to program the vehicle’s built-in navigation system to optimize routes for roads where Super Cruise is active. CR will test the updated system when it becomes available.
