A Programmable Computer Chip-based Cruise-Control System (C3S)A Cruise-control System with: Automatic Surge and Spin Reduction (AS2R) Features (C3S/AS2R) 980559

Proposed is a computer chip-based, programmable, cruise-control system with memory (US patents applied for). Input means, such as a keypad, allows for cruise speeds to be pre-programmed by the operator, with the car moving or stopped.
The proposed system has an anti-surge capability. This prevents the cruise-control from being engaged (or “resumed”), when current vehicle speed is beyond either a driver selected or default “delta” from the target speed.
The system also has a spin reduction feature based on the ability to recognize wheel deceleration versus time. If an acceptable threshold is exceeded (i.e. the drive wheels break traction), the C3S/AS2R cuts back on the acceleration, until the system reaches equilibrium with predetermined and/or adaptable threshold(s).
