Adaptive Cruise ControlAdaptive cruise control systems improve driving comfort and can help the driver maintain a safe following distance during highway driving
An adaptive cruise control (ACC) uses forward looking radar and/or camera to help detect a vehicle directly ahead in the lane and is designed to automatically adapt a vehicle’s speed, and help maintain a safe distance from that vehicle when driving on a highway.
If the road ahead is clear the vehicle travels at the speed selected by the driver. However, if the radar and/or camera detects an impeding vehicle, it can help maintain safe vehicle separation by signaling to systems that control the engine, transmission and / or electronically controlled braking system to enable the vehicle to match the speed of the vehicle ahead.
