GM to roll out semi-automated cars in two years

Posted:

DETROIT (CNN) -- General Motors is going to produce cars that can basically drive themselves in about two years.

CEO Mary Barra said some 2017 models would be able to talk to other vehicles and use sensors. She called the system "super cruise" and described it as "semi-automated driving technology." The technology will allow hands-free driving on the highway and in stop-and-go traffic.

Other companies like Google, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan are developing various types of semi-automated or self-driving cars.

Fully autonomous vehicles are thought to be years away.
