How Does Cadillac Super Cruise Work?
Cadillac Super Cruise is a semi-autonomous hands-free driving system for use on limited access highways. With Super Cruise, highway driving—or, ahem, cruising—is easier and more comfortable because the system automatically controls vehicle speed and steering. But if you’re prone to distraction or encouraged to think you can be because you don’t need to hold the steering wheel, the system won’t work because it requires driver attention at all times.
Based on the Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) International classification, Cadillac Super Cruise falls under Level 2 (of 5), which means it provides partial driving automation. So, yes, a Super Cruise-enabled vehicle can drive for you, but, no, you cannot take a nap, check your email, or watch a movie while you’re behind the wheel.
