Imagine a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion. General Motors’ self-driving vehicle technology aims at making zero a reality. The fourth-generation Cruise AV is the first production-ready vehicle built from the start to operate safely on its own, with no driver, steering wheel, pedals or manual controls.
Its technology has the potential of eliminating human driver error, the leading cause of 94 percent of crashes. By employing electric-only vehicles, the fleet will also help reduce vehicle emissions, while reducing traffic and creating better use of your time and space on the world’s roads.
You can learn more about General Motors’ approach to safely putting self-driving cars on the roads in 2019 by reading the recent safety report submitted to the Department of Transportation: 2018 Self-Driving Safety Report.
