This has been talked about a bit but all the anti's here don't want to give any credence to Level 2 systems or they may accidentally compliment or compare to Tesla's <hahaha>
Volt's ACC radar is input to the OpenPilot which is uses in conjunction with the phones camera for vision (lanes, freespace, stopsigns, other cars, etc). Output from phone to hardware device that talks to Volts electronic steering and braking.Personally, I would rather have ACC w/out level2 autonomy, though maybe fully self driving would interest me. How much of the level2 autonomy is based on the existing gen2 Volt sensors, and how much is using the phone?
That is fantastic. Great for your commute.Openpilot in the 2017+ Volts is now an easy plug and play install with the release of the "GM Giraffe"
This unit replaces the stock ASCM and allows it to automatically provide power to the front radar module.
An install can be completed in less than an hour with zero permanent modifications.
I use OpenPilot daily for my commute and it is awesome, no more stop and go headaches, just sit back and enjoy the ride.
