The Cadillac CT6 review: Super Cruise is a game-changer
Super cruise is highly limited on where you can use it... The only thing it has over AP(1,2,2.5) is the lack of nagging... Other than that, I don't see what the fuss is...
One big accident and they’ll get “nagging”. I’m surprised GM’s lawyers didn’t catch that already.
Would be nice to see a live side-by-side comparison video ...
Supercruise can only work on major highways and only in the US.Canada. How is that impressive? It relies on very accurate mapping so that it always going to limit it's usefulness. Move ahead 5 years where something like autopilot or other non mapping solutions get a lot better - you can use them on any road, anywhere in the World, whether they are mapped our not. If a road get's upgraded/changed you don't have to wait for GM to re-map and update.
I think it's limitations mean it's always going to be niche - major highways only and major countries only.
The car itself does not have LIDAR so GM has to send one equipped with LIDAR and map specific areas first.
Once that's done, your system is functional as long as you are within those restricted areas.
Tesla doesn't like that philosophy that your company only programs in such a way that only benefit a specific route but not others.
That's why Tesla delayed its driverless coast-to-coast trip planned for 12/2017.
It could have met the deadline if it would program to run driverlessly for that particular LAX to NYC route but not for the rest of the routes for rest of owners in the world.
That's why Tesla wants to delay the demo because it wants all owners and all routes in all over the world to benefit from that.
yes. Spot on. I was driving my X on a motorway a couple of days ago where there are major road works. They "moved' the lanes about 12 metres left and re-lined the road. The X adjusted great but Supercruise would have croaked. When you drive on anything less than a motoroway , supercruise just doesn't work but adaptive (non mapping) systems continue to work just fine.
Just not a fan of the tech and think it's very limiting. They would need to add in other systems to make it use mapping if it's there and other sensors if it's not.

The bigger thing to me: the Tesla system has better longevity. Since Supercruise relies on GM’s mapping, and since they clearly aren’t going to stick with that going forward, as they’d be left in the dust if they did, how long do you think GM is going to work on keeping their maps up to date? As soon as they stop doing so, their entire system becomes useless. I’d predict that within 5 years, Supercruise will be disabled on all cars that currently have it.
