  • Meet the Cruise AV, GM's First Production-Ready Driverless Car

But no matter how safe GM makes the vehicle, it can't account for the environment.

"Where FMVSS can not be met because they are human-driver-based requirements, the vehicle will meet the safety purposes of those standards", GM's report said.

"When you see this image for the first time it's quite striking", Dan Ammann, president of GM, told CNBC. For example, with vehicle manufacturers such as Volvo, Tesla and BMW, driverless cars are seen as the future of driving and have altered the future manufacturing strategy of these firms.

Ford is building a hotter SUV: the Edge ST
None of the bug numbers are out yet, but we expect the Edge ST to come close to the 17/24 mpg city/highway of the Edge Sport . Standard on all Edge models is FordPass Connect , with a Wi-Fi hotspot that gives internet access to up to 10 devices.

The software is also created to cope with any potential vehicle malfunctions to maintain safety, according to GM. It has previously pointed to the challenges of testing in dense urban areas.

In its proposal, GM asks the administration for alternative ways to meet the 16 federal driver-based requirements for operating on public roads. "That will begin in one city and scale up in that city and move to other cities after that", he added.

General Motors will soon unveil the self-driving Chevrolet Bolt, a auto not equipped with pedals or a steering wheel, leaving control entirely to the vehicle's AI. Called the Cruise AV, GM hopes to put it on the road in 2019. Arizona is one possible destination, as Cruise is already testing some of its other vehicles there, and the state's regulations are friendly to autonomous vehicles. So far autonomous driving is only allowed in about seven states including California and MI. The idea is to eventually make hundreds of thousands of self-driving vehicles a year, much like conventional vehicles today.

This glimpse at the near-future comes a month after GM made the bold announcement that it would have a fully driverless taxi fleet up and running in 2019. GM has said the cost of shared rides could be less than $1 per mile by 2025 and the automaker sees potential for this becoming a core part of its business. The cars also have a backup braking system independent of the autonomous-driving system that activates if a crash is imminent. "GM wants to control its own self-driving fleet partly because of the tremendous revenue potential it sees in selling related services, from e-commerce to infotainment, to consumers riding in those vehicles", explains Reuters, possibly netting "several hundred thousands of dollars" over a vehicle's lifetime versus the, say, $30,000 it earns selling a auto. Details are still being worked out.

"We're seeking to maintain the same, equal safety but to achieve the safety objectives of some standards in a different way", said Paul Hemmersbaugh, a former chief counsel for NHTSA who now serves as chief counsel for GM's mobility efforts.
