General Motors CEO Mary Barra has revealed Cadillac will launch their Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system on an all-new 2017 model.

The Super Cruise system uses a series of cameras and sensors to drive the car automatically. As the company explains, Super Cruise "will offer customers a new type of driving experience that includes hands-off lane following, braking and speed control in certain highway driving conditions."

Besides confirming the launch date for Super Cruise, Barra said the 2017 Cadillac CTS will come with vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technology. As a refresher, V2V technology allows vehicles to send and receive information about their speed, location and direction of travel. This information is then used to warn drivers about potential collisions ahead of time.

In a statement, Barra said “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." She added, "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.”
