Meet the Cruise AV, GM's First Production-Ready Driverless Car
The Detroit-based automaker on Thursday revealed its plans for a fully-autonomous, electric vehicle to hit the road by 2019. According to the Society of Automotive Engineers, self-driving cars can drive without human intervention but only in specific geographic locations. Eventually, it should serve in ride-hailing services in cities across the U.S.
If NHTSA approves GM's petition for their machine-only cars, the company will still need to get permission from different states to legally run them.
"Our self-driving vehicle is the result of intensely focused development, and countless hours of real-world testing and validation". Before they can officially be on the market, GM has to pass safety tests and get approval from the federal government.
"Imagine a world with no auto crashes", General Motors wrote in a blurb to its 2018 Self-Driving Safety Report, delivered this week to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
A central touchscreen, and the climate control unit serve as the only physical interfaces between the passengers and the auto.
That said, this is a step in the right direction, and after all the failed concepts we've seen, a more practical approach may just what the industry needs.
GM is requesting that 2,500 vehicles receive exemptions. The move is a bold one, however, since all self-driving cars to date have had the safety features that enable the driver to take back control should an incident arise.
Like the report Waymo issued a year ago, GM's report discusses how its sensors and software work, and how it validates new technology at GM test tracks with driving simulators and on-the-road experience. As of now, only seven states allow such technology to be tested without a safety driver.
Some of Cruise's competitors, including Uber and Waymo, are also testing in Arizona. While it might seem like GM is asking for a special treatment, they really aren't, Ammann told The Verge.
Waymo, the former Google self-drive project, said at the end of a year ago it was ready to pull safety drivers from the front seat of its autonomous Pacifica minivans.
The Dearborn automaker is targeting delivery and fleet services at launch rather than focusing exclusively on autonomous vehicles as ride-sharing vehicles like other automakers.
