According to ZDNet, General Motors will be introducing hands-free driving on select vehicles by 2016. The GM system dubbed “Super Cruise” will feature Vehicle to Vehicle technology that allows drivers to operate vehicles hands free. The brand new feature will warn drivers of impending collisions by notifying the driver of locations, speed and direction making driving safer than ever.
The Super Cruise feature will be designed to initiate once on the highway like cruise control. When Super cruise is activated, drivers will be able to stay hands-off while the vehicle adjusts to other vehicles in lane following and braking situations. Although the new autonomous driving feature will take care of most of the decision making on the highway, drivers will still have to pay attention while on the road.
