Summertime is the ideal time to schedule a road trip. But driving for long stretches of road can be exhausting! There’s nothing fun about a frozen leg after 12 straight hours of manning the wheel. Aside from a strong cup of coffee, and maybe some good music, there isn’t much you can do to lessen the blow of constant driving. Cruise control is a major plus when you’ve got miles of road ahead of you. And you don’t need to be a frequent cross-country driver to realize the benefit of cruise control, either! There are cool, new features to learn with each new vehicle. We want to get you geared up for summer. We’re going to dive into Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). We’ll learn what it is, and how it can help you next time you hit the road for a long drive this season.
Are you ready to roll? Read on!
What is ACC?
You may be surprised to find that Adaptive Cruise Control goes by many names. Some of these include active cruise control, intelligent cruise control, autonomous cruise control, or radar cruise control. This type of smart cruise is quickly gaining traction among the automobile crowd for a variety of reasons. It slows and speeds up automatically, and keeps in pace with the car directly in front of you. It also allows the driver to set a maximum speed, and radar sensors monitor traffic ahead. The system then instructs the driver to stay 2-4 seconds behind. It’s perfect for long trips with stop-and-go-traffic, and those rush hour roads that seems to never end. Adaptive Cruise Control is in line with self-driving cars of the future. It’s intended to help you better evaluate the road in a way that’s easier and safer than ever before.
