A part of Continental Automotive Systems’ Vision Zero road-safety package, the company’s adaptive cruise control (ACC) features a radar sensor and computer in the front of the car that measures the distance from the vehicle in front and the relative speed of the two vehicles. If the vehicle in front brakes or a vehicle suddenly cuts in front, ACC reduces the speed or applies the brakes. The driver is also prompted to apply the brakes if the system’s initial intervention is insufficient. The enhanced ACC with Full Speed Range function controls the distance and speed until the vehicle comes to a complete standstill and then controls the speed again as the vehicle pulls away.
