Speed is often underestimated and the distance to the vehicle in front is easily overestimated. The Adaptive Cruise Control is able to automatically adjust the driving speed, as well as the distance to the vehicle ahead, in line with the preset settings. It can be used from a speed of 25 km/h onwards.
The radar sensor with a range of approx. 150 m recognises the distance to and the relative speed of the vehicles ahead in the same lane.
Using the sensor data, the vehicle’s own speed and the driver’s actions, the control unit calculates the best distance strategy and controls engine torque and continuous and service brakes.
Speed, acceleration and retardation of the vehicle are actively regulated, thus maintaining the distance to the vehicle ahead.
