Adaptive Cruise Control - ACC
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) uses headway sensors to continuously measure the distance to other vehicles, automatically adjusting the speed to ensure the vehicle does not get too close to the one in front. The driver activates the cruise control by setting the desired maximum speed and then selecting the time gap to the vehicles in front. ACC then adjusts the vehicle's speed to match that of preceding vehicle as necessary.
ACC will be tested by Ford, MAN, Volvo Cars, Volvo Trucks and Volkswagen:
