General Motors has unveiled its newest semi-autonomous vehicle. The Cadillac Celestiq will be deploying its Ultra Cruise advanced driver assistance system, the company said in a statement.
The Ultra Cruise driver assistance system is designed to ultimately enable hands-free driving in 95 percent of all driving scenarios, says GM. The system will have a 360-degree view of the vehicle through a sensor suite when it launches on the Cadillac.
Ultra Cruise uses a blend of cameras, short- and long-range radars, LiDAR behind the windshield, and a computing system and a driver attention system to monitor the driver’s head position and/or eyes in relation to the road.
Vehicles equipped with Ultra Cruise hardware will experience incremental enhancements through over-the-air software updates as well, according to GM.
