General Motors to unveil self-piloted cars by 2020

GM promises to focus on passenger safety by developing self-piloted vehicles.

General Motors are following in the footsteps of Volkswagen who announced that hey are testing a driverless car.

GM will use technologies such as GPS, distance-sensing and vehicle-to-vehicle communications in order to allow the vehicle to dodge collisions, identify pedestrians, park itself and pick-up the driver. All of this can be accomplished via systems placed in the vehicle or through a smartphone app.

“The technologies we’re developing will provide an added convenience by partially or even completely taking over the driving duties,” said Alan Taub, GM Vice President of Global Research and Development.

“The primary goal, though, is safety. Future generation safety systems will eliminate the crash altogether by interceding on behalf of drivers before they’re even aware of a hazardous situation. In the coming years, we believe the industry will experience a dramatic leap in activity safety systems, and hopefully, a dramatic decline in injuries and fatalities on our roadways. GM has made a commitment to be at the forefront of this development.”

The Chevrolet EN-V urban mobility concept will be presented this week at the ITS World Congress.
