General Motors Staff Researcher Dr. Jeremy Salinger road tests a Cadillac using the semi-autonomous Super Cruise technology.

The concerns U.S. regulators have about the implementation of semi-autonomous or autonomous vehicles appears to be growing as safety officials really dig into the inner workings of these new technological marvels.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently urged General Motors to exercise caution in the implementation of its Super Cruise semi-autonomous system, specifically the fact that the system will slowly bring the car to a full stop if it senses the driver is sleeping, incapacitated or simply not paying attention.

NHTSA confirms the automaker’s plan to bring the car to a stop and activate the vehicle’s hazard lights if the driver is inattentive or unresponsive is compliant with federal automotive standards. However, it is also concerned the flashing lights could be misinterpreted by other drivers creating a more serious safety issue. (more…)

The Opel Insignia demonstrates intersection collision avoidance with a Chevrolet EN-V 2.0 second generation electric networked vehicle.

In July, the streets of Belle Isle, Detroit’s history island park in the Detroit River, saw Indy cars roaring around the road venue, but now it is hosting self-driving two-seaters that are closer to floating bubbles than open-wheel racers.

The night after Mary Barra, General Motors CEO, announced the Cadillac brand will be the first of the maker’s products to get Super Cruise, a slew of technologies that make a vehicle nearly autonomous, the maker showed off the next step in that technology, led by the second generation EN-V, Chevrolet’s electric networked vehicle.

Slip into your EN-VI pod and plug in a destination before turning the driving duties over to your vehicle? That's one increasingly real vision of the future.

It sounds easy enough. Pilot a sport-utility vehicle around a banked test track at General Motors Milford Proving Ground. But there is a catch and it’s a big one: while you’re sitting behind the wheel you’ll also be sitting on your hands, letting a complex network of cameras, radar sensors and computers handle the actual job of driving at speeds approaching 70 miles per hour.

Unnerving, most definitely, but the system, dubbed Super Cruise” by GM engineers and researchers, offers a glimpse into the future of motoring. Once you get the SUV is up and moving, the system works flawlessly. The computer keeps the vehicle perfect centered in the lane even when the SUV is moving at good clip.

The advanced version of the adaptive cruise control modulates the speeds to keep pace with the rest of the – manually operated — traffic on the test traffic. It slows when the researchers simulate a back-up around a freeway off ramp and speeds up as the traffic eases. We’re quickly back up to freeway speed.
