GM has been working on self-driving technology for nearly a decade and that work will start to bear fruit soon, WIRED reported.
The company says it will have a fleet of self-driving Chevy Volts cruising around its Detroit technical innovation center next year. The center sits on a campus with 11 miles of roads that GM is using for testing self-driving technology.
It’s also going to release a semi-autonomous software on an unspecified Cadillac model next year. Tesla just rolled out its own semi-autonomous driving technology that can automatically steer and parallel park to more than 42,000 of its vehicles last week. We expect other automakers to take a similar approach of gradually automating more driving functions over time until consumers are comfortable with a fully self-driving car.
