gm to triple its super cruise road network in canada

Super Cruise, GM’s hands-free driver assistance technology, is being boosted from around 24,000 km of compatible Canadian roadways to around 80,000 km. For those unfamiliar, Super Cruise currently works on mapped divided highways and the increase will see it work on several additional routes, including a blend of undivided and divided highways.

The most notable Canadian addition for this new update is the Trans-Canada Highway, meanwhile, south of the border, there are also expansions to Route 66 and Highway 1.

The system uses uses LiDAR map data, real-time cameras, radars, and GPS to keep vehicles within their lane and moving with the flow of traffic. It can execute both driver and system-initiated lane changes to pass other vehicles and to exit an ending lane. The driver’s head position and eyes are monitored to make sure that they’re always paying attention and in control of the vehicle.

“We are adding Super Cruise to more vehicles than ever, and on more roads for more customers to experience,” said Mario Maiorana, GM chief engineer, Super Cruise. “We are pursuing what we believe to be the most comprehensive path to autonomy in the industry with responsible deployment of automated driving technology like Super Cruise at the core of what we do.”

For new GM vehicles built on the VIP electrical architecture, the updated and expanded road network will be available later this year. It will be provided over-the-air on Super Cruise-equipped models at no extra charge.
