As we travel on the road to fully self-driving cars, the automotive industry wants you to stay alert. Cadillac’s new Super Cruise tracks your eyes to be sure you’re paying attention when using the optional semi-autonomous system, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Offered first for the 2017 Cadillac CT6, the Super Cruise system uses visual and audible alerts if it detects you’re not paying attention. Ignore the alerts and an OnStar information system rep will speak to you via intercom — OnStar is required with Super Cruise. If you still don’t respond, the car pulls to the side of the road and stops.
