Intelligent Cruise Control - Issues for Consideration 961667
With the development and introduction of advanced vehicle control systems such as intelligent cruise control (ICC) and forward collision avoidance systems (FCAS), many safety and human factors issues specific to these control systems are being raised. This paper addresses some issues that, to date, are still matters for discussion and consideration amongst system designers. Aimed principally at the implementation of ICC, some items naturally lend themselves to the design of forward collision avoidance systems as well. Specific issues discussed include: seat belt lock-out systems, foot placement sensing, and adjustable headway.
