General Motors seeks U.S. approval for auto with no steering wheel
14 January, 2018, 00:20 | Author: Brian Mcdaniel
The company showcased the Cruise AV, which gets a centre-stack and infotainment system design to current GM cars, but the big things missing are the steering wheel on the driver's side and of course the gear lever and all the pedals.
"We have not yet shared detailed on locations, but we now test our driverless cars in downtown San Francisco, Phoenix, and metro Detroit, and we plan to expand to New York City this year".
If we are to consider a vehicle truly autonomous, it would surely be at the point where human controls are completely removed such as a steering wheel and pedals.
General Motorsannounced its self-driving Cruise AV-a modified electric Chevrolet Bolt-on Friday, January 12, following a petition submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to deploy a vehicle that doesn't comply with current safety standards. Gone is the wheel, the digital instrumentation panel, and the pedals; there's no shifter or stalks for turn-signals. GM is among them, having received approval from NY state officials, as well as a public demonstration of the Cruise AV back on November 2017. It'll also offer a way to contact a remote support enter, should there be a question or an emergency.
It'll be possible for humans to stop the auto - GM says customers having an emergency "may end the ride by making a stop request, and the vehicle will pull to the side of the road at the next available safe place".
Most of the self-driving cars on the road today have a steering wheel and brake pedal so that a human can take over if needed.
