    Interesting comparison of GM (vs customers) doing 3D mapping of the environment compared to the new Tesla AutoPilot in version 8.0/8.1. See underlines.

    That's really interesting. And limiting. What happens with changes?

    Interesting. The CT6 doesn't have LIDAR, right? I wonder how it will use the LIDAR generated map?

    So far I'm thinking the Tesla approach is superior - more data in much less time, at lower cost, and more obvious immediate use for it.

    It appears the Cadillac CT6 will just have a camera and radar and use preloaded 3-D maps. Comments below indicate the Mobileye camera based crowdsourced map for "changes on a route".
