Supercruise --- Real Self-Driving Cars Coming to America

Sometimes you just have to wonder why the State of Michigan keeps buying shares in MicroVision.

Compare the LiDAR Picture in the Cadillac Video with the MicroVision Video Below.

That LiDar Demo (Compare 18-24 seconds in the Cadillac video to the MicroVision video, at about 45 seconds)

Also find it fascinating that they have mapped the highways....

Thanks Dr. B

From Forbes --- more at the source.

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.


Cadillac's focus is driver attention and safety. The technology includes automatic lane-centering and speed control, thanks to the "precision LiDAR map data" that Cadillac collected, plus real-time cameras and GPS sensors. LiDAR, or Light Detection and Ranging, uses lasers to measure distance to objects.
