Adaptive cruise control

Changing target with Adaptive Cruise Control

Updated 7/23/2018

In combination with automatic gearbox, the adaptive cruise control (ACCAdaptive Cruise Control) has functionality for change of target at certain speeds.

Change of target

P5-1507-ACC RadarSensorTargetChange

If the target vehicle in front suddenly turns then there may be stationary traffic in front.

When adaptive cruise control is following another vehicle at speeds below30 km/h (20 mph) and changes target from a moving to a stationary vehicle, the adaptive cruise control will slow down for the stationary vehicle.

Warning

When the adaptive cruise control is following another vehicle at speeds in excess ofapprox. 30 km/h (20 mph) and the target is changed from a moving vehicle to a stationary vehicle, the adaptive cruise control will ignore the stationary vehicle and instead accelerate to the stored speed.

  • The driver must then intervene him/herself and brake.

Automatic standby mode with change of target

The adaptive cruise control is disengaged and set in standby mode:

  • when the speed is below 5 km/h (3 mph) and the adaptive cruise control is uncertain whether the target object is a stationary vehicle or some other object, such as a speed bump.
  • when the speed is below 5 km/h (3 mph) and the vehicle ahead turns off so the adaptive cruise control no longer has a vehicle to follow.
