Adaptive Cruise Control PT-132

This book contains 63 papers covering the past 11 years (1996-2006) of research on the progress and challenges in the design of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) systems and components. Introduced in the automotive market in 1995, ACC takes advantage of the functions of several existing electronic control units and adds a sensor for measuring distance, relative speed, and lateral position of potential target vehicles using laser optics or millimeter waves.

Subjects covered include:

  • ACC sensors overview
  • Hybrid ACC systems
  • Interactive cruise control
  • Predictive safety systems
  • Brake actuation
  • ACC radar sensors
  • Vision sensors
  • Miscellaneous ACC sensors

    The book also includes editor Ronald K. Jurgen's introduction ("Adaptive Cruise Control: Still Evolving") and a concluding chapter on the current state of ACC and what can be expected in the future.
