General Motors has been slowly developing its autonomous vehicle technology over the years, with ambitious plans to have all the bugs ironed out of the system by 2020. Engineers are still hard at work developing the self-driving cars, as evidenced by the Cadillac SRX equipped with self-driving technology which was recently spotted testing on Michigan roads.
The spy shots, provided by Left Lane News, show the SRX outfitted with multiple sensors and cameras. From the photos its apparent the autonomous driving technology isn’t quite production ready, but as GM continues its development work, the hardware will become more integrated into the vehicles electronics.
When development of the technology is complete, the most likely place for GM to introduce it would be on a Cadillac. The technology may appeal more to luxury customers, and as Left Lane News points out, they should be able to hide the additional cost of autonomous technology in Cadillac’s higher prices.
