Driver-assistive technologies have become increasingly popular in new vehicles. And it’s no wonder why as it helps drivers stay aware of what is happening around them on the road while providing ways to control and operate their vehicle better. A popular feature is an improvement upon cruise control, but what is Adaptive Cruise Control?

Cruise control is already an innovative technology that is available in vehicles. Easily setting a speed that the vehicle itself will maintain until you apply the brakes or turn it off. But now the feature has been upgraded and improved into the Adaptive Cruise Control system.

More so than the normal cruise control system, Adaptive Cruise Control will maintain a following distance as well as a set speed. For instance, if there is a car in front of yours, if/when your vehicle nears the other car, the system will ‘adapt’ to follow its speed. That way, if the other car slows down, so will yours.
