GM plans driverless auto launch next year

GM plans driverless auto launch next year

The automaker hopes to have passengers and cargo being transported by the vehicles in the next year.

It's happening. Cars will be built without steering wheels, pedals or any sort of driver input will become a reality from 2019, according to General Motors.

"If you're testing Level 4 technology with a driver, you're not really testing it at level 4", he said in an interview at the CES technology show in Las Vegas this week. For instance, the autonomous Bolts will have no steering-wheel-mounted airbag because they have no steering wheel. Not only will the cars have no steering wheel, but they also won't have a brake or gas pedal.

Ford Motor Co said that it will partner with delivery service Postmates Inc as the automaker starts testing ways to transport people, food and packages this spring in its self-driving cars, which are being developed by Ford's Argo unit. Passengers will be able to stop the ride at anytime by making a stop in the vehicle.

GM, which also tests in Phoenix, said in a safety report slated to be released Friday that for every 1,000 miles of autonomous driving, its auto needed to make 1,462 left turns in San Francisco, compared with 919 in the Phoenix suburbs. "It can manoeuvre through construction cones, yield to emergency vehicles and react to avoid collisions".

Based on the Chevy Bolt, the electric Cruise AV will initially be employed in a ride-hailing capacity and operate within a pre-determined, well-mapped "geo-fenced" area, so it won't be entirely off the leash. All other companies combined had five accidents.

Company President Dan Ammann told reporters that GM had filed for government approval to deploy the "first production-ready vehicle designed from the start without a steering wheel, pedals or other unnecessary manual controls".

If NHTSA approves the petition, GM will still have to get permission from states to run the steering wheel-free cars. The Department of Transportation announced on Wednesday that it would begin accepting public comment from stakeholders and concerned parties on the federal guidelines for self-driving cars, formally called A Vision for Safety 2.0.
