The Autonomous car was the President of General Motors.
The American company Cruise Automation, last year, purchased by General Motors, posted a video of the arrival of the Autonomous car through the streets of San Francisco. According to The Detroit News, the autopilot system was installed on the Chevrolet Bolt electric car and in the car during this trip was attended by GM President Dan Ammann.
Chevrolet Bolt — 200-horsepower electric vehicle capable of driving on a single charge up to 320 kilometers. This model was named the best car of 2017 in the United States.
The video shows the operation of the autopilot in various road conditions: the machine inspects parked on the roadway cars, changing lanes, pedestrians and cyclists and makes the decision to overtake or not leaving the stop, the bus. The company argued that the race took place entirely in an Autonomous mode without human intervention to manage.
Currently, Cruise and GM are testing Autonomous vehicles on the basis of “Bolt”, not only in San Francisco, but also in Scottsdale, Arizona and Michigan. In addition, the manufacturer collaborates with service Lyft, intending to create a network of taxis with the autopilot. Such machines will also be tested on public roads in the near future.
Previously, the GM promised to take to the road production vehicles with autopilot by 2020.
