GM Reveals Autonomous Car With No Steering Wheel Or Pedals

GM and other companies have tested autonomous cars on the road, yet the vehicles typically have an engineer behind the wheel, reading to take over in case the need arises. "Our self-driving vehicles aim to eliminate human driver error - the primary cause of 94 percent of crashes - leading to fewer injuries and fatalities", GM said in their "2018 Self-Driving Safety Report". Approval is needed to deploy the Cruise AV on public roads as planned in 2019. The company declined to say where it would like to launch the fleets, which customers would hail via an app and engage with via touchscreens inside the vehicles. For example, the new model will have an alternative location for an airbag that would normally be in the steering wheel, Rice said.

TechCrunch reported the Cruise AV is based on the Bolt electric vehicle platform and can even close the doors of passengers who don't.

If NHTSA approves the petition, GM will still have to get permission from states to run the steering wheel-free cars.

United States auto giant General Motors has revealed its new Cruise AV, which it says is the first production-ready fully-autonomous vehicle.

The automaker is preparing to meet its 2019 goal for deploying a driverless ride-hailing service in a yet-to-be-announced US city. For instance, cars now are required to have an air bag in the steering wheel.

Vogt added that the new Chevy has redundant systems built in to back up the driving systems. The company also says that passengers will benefit from less traffic and not having to find parking when using its self-driving cars.

And the auto doesn't just drive itself, if you forget to close the door behind you it'll do that itself without complaint before heading off to pick up another fare. "It doesn't drink and drive, doesn't text and drive, doesn't get upset, doesn't get exhausted, never gets distracted, and doesn't produce any emissions".

Specifically, the vehicle contains 21 radar sensors, 16 cameras, and no fewer than five lidar units, and runs on self-driving software developed by Cruise and GM.

The automaker added that it will work with regulators to develop new safety standards and petition for "permission to meet the safety objective of a standard through alternative means".

GM showed the third-generation test vehicle in October and has been using a geo-fenced portion of San Francisco for testing, a suitably tricky test bed to ensure vehicles can handle any situation. Currently, only seven states allow the technology to be tested without a safety driver, said Paul Hemmersbaugh, GM's chief counsel and policy director for transportation as a service.
