Brooklyn Bridge Testing is undergone by Cadillac XTS

Brooklyn Bridge is known to be one of New York's finest and most famous landmarks and it is also a key testing for the Cadillac XTS, which represents their new flagship sedan. The reason is that a lot of iron was used to built this bridge and it can mess up the radar waves used by the car's numerous safety systems. Thus, the Cadillac's Driver Awareness and Driver Assist active safety systems would be quite efficient during the traffic jams that often occur on bridges, by maintaining a safe distance to the other cars in the stop-and-go environment. Using a Sensor Fusion, the XTS manages to get around the interference from the metal in the bridge. According to Jim Nickolaou, the lead engineer for Sensor Fusion, the camera, sensors and radar technology smartly blend becoming the "brain" behind all the safety features, being able to feed data 25 times per second into the car's computer network. He also added that they found the most efficient way to test the accuracy of the system by gauging its performance in highly stressful driving conditions that could confuse it, conditions which were to be found on the Brooklyn Bridge. Every scenario must be anticipated, especially for those who wish to challenge the technology. Nickolaou also stated that the systems were tuned in order to discern the actual obstacles from the other things in the vicinity that should not result into a braking or warning action.
