DETROIT -- General Motors said May 2 it is planning to take its Cadillac brand's semi-autonomous “Super Cruise” driving technology to the next stage of testing, which includes real-world driving assessment and other tests. The company reiterated its previous announcement that this technology could end up in production models later this decade.
