Same technology will also debut in new flagship Cadillac model

At the Intelligent Transport System (ITS) World Congress in Detroit, GM CEO Mary Barra announced the addition of new vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) technologies in the 2017 Cadillac CTS and an as-yet unnamed future flagship model due in the same year.

The advanced driver assist technology, dubbed Super Cruise, will be enabled with V2V communication technology, allowing the Cadillacs to send and receive information from other vehicles in the vicinity.

“A tide of innovation has invigorated the global auto industry, and we are taking these giant leaps forward to remain a leader of new technology,” Barra said.

“We are not doing this for the sake of the technology itself. We’re doing it because it’s what customers around the world want. Through technology and innovation, we will make driving safer.”

The new system will allow drivers to be completely ‘hands-off’ in certain highway driving conditions. Cadillac to debut V2V technology in 2017 Cadillac CTS CadillacV2V05.jpg CadillacV2V10.jpg CadillacV2V12.jpg CadillacV2V17.jpg GM's road to intelligent and connected vehicles Cadillac to introduce Super Cruise in a new 2017 Cadillac Model
