General Motors is testing future self-driving car technology in Israel, according to a Globes report published on Sunday. Specifically, the cars are Cadillacs, though it’s unclear how advanced the technology in question is.
Ministry of Transport chief scientist Dr. Shay Soffer participated in one of the car’s self-driving trials, Gil Golan, CEO of General Motors Israel’s advanced development center, said in the report. Sources added many improvements to Cadillac’s Super Cruise system and other technologies are under development at the Israel facility. Whatever the technology may be is reportedly slated for production in two to five years.
The report added that numerous other technologies are in development at the advanced development center, including 5G connectivity, wireless charging stations, advanced sensors and artificial intelligence (AI).
On the Cadillac front, President Johan de Nysschen said the luxury brand will once again become GM’s star division, and new technology will debut at Cadillac first. Other brands will see the tech trickle down after Cadillac.
