Are Autonomous Cars the end of Cruise Control?

As auto manufacturers continue to develop technology that helps drivers, such as cruise control, we can expect more advances to be made in the next couple of years. We have already heard about Google’s driverless cars that are being tested in California. Audi has also been developing technology that will take over a car’s steering under certain conditions.

A recent article in Forbes described how GM is also developing and testing the technology that will aid drivers, however it is not calling it autonomous driving. By 2017, GM’s luxury line of vehicles will be equipped with ‘Super Cruise’ technology, which can take control of the vehicle for a prolonged period of time.

GM’s super cruise technology is similar to Audi’s cruise automation and won’t completely take over steering, accelerating and braking of the vehicle. However, under certain circumstances, such as driving on the freeway, the driver is able to turn it on like cruise control, sit back and enjoy the ride.
