adaptive cruise control

Automotive cruise control that maintains a safe distance. When the cruise control is turned on and a speed is set, adaptive systems keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically braking and accelerating. Adaptive cruise control (ACC) uses radar to measure the distance to the vehicle ahead. Also called "active cruise control," "dynamic cruise control," "smart cruise control" and "intelligent cruise control." Just like regular cruise control, some ACC systems disengage at slower speeds in the 20-25 MPH range. However, "stop and go ACC," also called "traffic jam assist," will come to a complete stop, which enables drivers to use the system in bumper-to-bumper traffic. See automotive safety systems.


Set the Distance
The steering wheel control on this 2017 Honda allows drivers to choose short, middle, long and extra long to set the distance threshold to the car ahead based on their driving preferences.
