Cadillac, the New York-based automotive brand, laid out its key plans for the autonomous driving at the Future of Mobility Conference in Dubai. Cadillac’s Super Cruise utilises two advanced technology systems — a driver attention system and precision LiDAR map data — to guarantee safe and confident vehicle operation.

Super Cruise is the first assisted driving technology that uses precision LiDAR map data in addition to real-time cameras, sensors and GPS. The car uses the real-time data provided by the cameras and sensors to govern steering, braking and acceleration. Super Cruise adds to this formula using advanced laser technology in development for future autonomous vehicles: A LiDAR-scanned map database.

Leveraging General Motors’ expertise in battery cell technology, the Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid is designed to provide all-electric driving for most daily commutes, while maximising fuel efficiency by providing blended power from the engine and battery at higher speeds and higher loads, even when energy is stored in the battery. The CT6 Plug-In Hybrid combines an all-new rear wheel drive electric variable transmission to provide the smooth, spirited acceleration expected from a driver’s car.

Further underscoring Cadillac’s forward-thinking approach to mobility, BOOK by Cadillac is an innovative new option targeted at a growing class of luxury drivers searching for access to various cars over time, dependent on their individual needs, coupled with a hassle-free ‘white-glove’ exchange.
