We’ve talked a lot about autonomous driving developments like Google’s self-driving car, but today in Detroit GM CEO Mary Barra is announcing her company’s push to put similar technology in cars we can actually buy. Two years from now, Cadillac will launch an all-new car with its “Super Cruise” technology that not only holds your speed, but uses sensors to keep it in the middle of the lane, and can brake if necessary. We’ve ridden in a demo vehicle that could even steer to avoid obstacles, but what’s coming is more limited (likely because of legal and insurance questions that have yet to be answered), and says it will provide comfort to “an attentive driver” — hopefully with enough leeway for us to snap an in-traffic selfie or two. %Gallery-slideshow220733%
