How GM's Cruise AV works
14 January, 2018, 00:23
General Motors on Friday revealed that it has filed a Safety Petition with the Department of Transportation for the fourth-gen Cruise AV, which will become the world's first production vehicle to be manufactured from the ground up with no steering wheel, pedals, or manual controls. Along with a display on the center stack, there are infotainment screens in the headrests of the front seats for rear passengers to use.
Some critics, such as Jalopnik's Jason Torchinsky, have suggested GM should have been more experimental: "There's just no reason to keep these rigid interior design rules when you're not required (or able) to drive!"
General Motors (GM) has revealed that it's on track to put its first self-driving auto on roads in 2019.
"When GM acquiredCruise, we began by installing our technology into existing cars as a retrofit strategy, and we knew that wouldn't scale", Kyle Vogt, Cruise CEO, said. The petition requested federal officials to allow these vehicles to operate on American roads without them having to meet 16 Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards that are now in place to cover vehicles that have human drivers, but are not necessarily applicable for driverless vehicles.
Passengers will be able to stop the vehicle on command in the event of an emergency.
The autonomous cars now being tested by major companies still have manual controls.

"If you're testing Level 4 technology with a driver, you're not really testing it at Level 4", Pratt said in an interview at the CES technology show in Las Vegas this week, Bloomberg Technologyreports.
General Motors is asking the federal government to approve adjustments to 16 motor vehicle standards so it can move forward with testing the vehicle on public roads and highways by 2019, CNBC reported.
Instead of a steering wheel, the dashboard has a solitary touchscreen at the center that is surrounded by mostly blank surfaces.
General Motors hopes its new driverless electric vehicle, and others following it, will be part of a safer, cleaner and more efficient future that will lead the transition to a time without traffic jams.
GM purchased driverless tech startup Cruise Automation for a reported $600m in 2016, and a year later it acquired Strobe, a company which GM thinks can help it cut the cost of manufacturing autonomous vehicle sensors by 99 percent. The to-be-submitted report is expected to bring more clarity in this respect. GM's Cruise Automation division already uses Bolt EVs as autonomous test mules, after all. All other companies combined had five accidents.
GM said its vehicle is created to safely operate among aggressive drivers, bicyclists, unprotected left turns, jaywalkers, delivery trucks and four-way stop signs. "So it's to meet the standards but meet them in a way that's different than what's exactly prescribed, and that's what the petition seeks to get approval for".
