GM's Next ADAS
Goes 'Ultra'
by Paul Seredynski
GM's latest SAE Level 2 system will enable hands-free
operation in " 95% of driving scenarios. "
GM recently announced the next generation of its
hands-free Super Cruise advanced driver-assist system
(ADAS), upping the label to " Ultra Cruise. " GM claims the
Ultra Cruise system, expected to appear first on Cadillac
models in 2023, will ultimately enable hands-free driving
on all paved public roads in the U.S. and Canada in " 95%
of driving scenarios. " At launch next year, the system is
expected to cover more than 2 million miles of roads,
with the capacity to grow to more than 3.4 million miles.
Describing the system as a " door-to-door handsfree
driving experience, " GM claims owners of Ultra
Cruise-equipped vehicles will be able to travel handsfree
across nearly every road, including highways, city
and subdivision streets, along with paved rural routes.
GM noted that its system has been developed completely
in-house (via collaborating teams based in Israel, the U.S.,
Canada, and Ireland). Ultra Cruise will co-exist within the
company's lineup with Super Cruise, which will become
more widely available on mainstream vehicles, with Ultra
Cruise reserved for more premium entries.
GM detailed that Ultra Cruise is powered by a
5-nanometer, scalable compute architecture based
on its new Ultifi software and Vehicle Intelligence
Platform. Ultra Cruise will be able to add features
over time through over-the-air (OTA) updates and has
added significant capabilities to Super Cruise, including
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq EV is a likely
early application for Ultra Cruise. The
Level 2 system's sensor suite uses
cameras, radars and a lidar module
integrated behind the windshield
to provide a 3D, 360°
statistical representation
of the environment
surrounding the vehicle
and " redundancies in
critical areas. "
