Default General Motors Autonomous Bolt EV in SF

This is a driverless run at night through busy San Francisco streets, known for having some of the worst drivers and roadway layout in the US.

Pretty impressive. WAY ahead of Tesla and other auto companies:

Look for the raccoon crossing at 00:24:45 (video image clock, 6:20 YouTube time).

Google might have more hours, but the GM/Cruise Automation system is doing more challenging environments.

In other news, Cadillac CTS cars have been shipping with V2V (vehicle to vehicle) technology for 'see around corners' ability. Cars tell each other what their sensors see to warn each other.

And... FINALLY, Cadillac is once again claiming they are releasing Super Cruise this fall. This is a 'hands free' driving system for use on highways. If you fall asleep (or unconscious) while driving, it will try to wake you, and if that fails, pull over and stop safely and summon assistance.

I love driving. A lot. But many people do not. They do everything but drive while behind the wheel. After many years of declining death rates, 2015 is where the trend reverses. More and more people are dying due to their lack of attention to the road which now kills more than drunks do.

It is sort of sad that it is coming to this, but time marches on. At least GM is not ignoring the problem.
