Can You Drive the Escalade with Only Cameras?

It goes without saying, that this would be a massively stupid thing to do on public roads. But on a closed course, it’s an interesting test to see just how good Cadillac’s cameras are.

And it turns out, they’re pretty good. You can actually do a lap of a go-kart track through your screen. They admit that it’s weird because of the disconnect between the feed and the motion, but ultimately it doesn’t look too hard to keep the Escalade on the track.

Depth perception is still weird, says the driver, making the whole experience, even on a closed course, feel safer at lower speeds, but ultimately the high def camera does a great job.

Again, this would be a wildly stupid thing to do on the road. But Cadillac’s experience with the rearview mirror feed appears to have served it well here.
