Tesla might be shipping cars with limited autonomous driving capability, but Cadillac says it’s selling the first “true” hands-free driving technology.
At least, for the highway.
The new technology will ship as an option in Cadillac’s flagship car, the CT6, which the company calls a “prestige sedan.” It will be available in fall this year, only in the U.S. and Canada. The geographical limitation is due to Cadillac’s proprietary mapping: the company mapped every mile of “limited-access highway” in both of those countries.
With the new technology, the driver doesn’t become a passenger. Instead, he or she becomes a “supervisor.”
