ACC (adaptive cruise control) is a functional extension of the cruise control and Bremsomat brake control systems. The ACC system can independently adjust both the driving speed and distance to the vehicle ahead in line with the advance settings (reference distance).
Speed, acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle are actively regulated and the distance to the vehicle ahead is thus observed. ACC can be used from a speed above 25 kilometres per hour. It is deployed mainly when driving on main roads and motorways. Components of the ACC system include Radar sensor, Multi-function Camera and Engine Management Control Unit.
Either the multifunction steering wheel or the cruise control lever can be used to operate the ACC system. It is possible to adjust the reference distance. The driver has the option at any time to override the system using the accelerator or switch it off via the brake or retarder lever.
