A more advanced cruise control that can automatically adjust a car's speed to maintain a safe following distance is in the future. This new technology, called adaptive cruise control, uses forward-looking radar, installed behind the grill of a vehicle, to detect the speed and distance of the vehicle ahead of it.
Adaptive cruise control is similar to conventional cruise control in that it maintains the vehicle's pre-set speed. However, unlike conventional cruise control, this new system can automatically adjust speed in order to maintain a proper distance between vehicles in the same lane.
If the lead vehicle slows down, or if another object is detected, the system sends a signal to the engine or braking system to decelerate. Then, when the road is clear, the system will re-accelerate the vehicle back to the set speed.
This new technology is not yet available for aftermarket installation, but some car manufacturers are testing this type of cruise control on their flagship models of vehicles. Ask about it at your local car dealer.
