Ultra Cruise will debut as an offering to its products next year and has been described as the next big step in GM’s journey. Barra describes the new system as a game-changer as it aims to take driver-assisted technology to the next level. The system will be mapped out to cover about 95 percent of driving scenarios including city streets, subdivisions, rural areas, and highways.
Eventually, the product will expand to every road throughout the USA and Canada. Barra adds that, as a technological piece of equipment, the Ultra Cruise system will be pretty impressive as well. Built-in conjunction with Qualcomm, the computer’s architecture measures the size of two laptops placed atop one another and is supported by a Snapdragon Ride 5nm processor.
