We rely on technology to make our lives easier. When we need information, we have the answers at our fingertips. We rely on technology for directions, for learning, for work and to stay connected with family and friends. When we think of technology in our vehicles, we think of how it helps to make driving safer and easier for everyone.
With technology at the forefront of automotive design and function, it only makes sense to have the best active safety and convenience features to help us on the road. One of these available features today is adaptive cruise control.
Although cruise control has already been around for decades, adaptive cruise control is an improved and more intuitive version of this familiar function. Traditional cruise control allows you to set and maintain your desired vehicle speed with the push of a button. This function is helpful, for example, on long road trips when you’d be travelling at a constant speed for a period of time, so you don’t have to keep your foot on the accelerator. With traditional cruise control, once you press the brakes or the accelerator again, the function is disengaged.
In comparison, adaptive cruise control is more responsive to the road and to traffic conditions. Using radar sensor technology, not only can you maintain constant vehicle speed, your vehicle can also slow down and speed up with the flow of traffic, without ever having to touch the brakes or accelerator. Some vehicles even incorporate cameras into the system to help distinguish vehicles from other objects. How cool is that?
It’s important to know that adaptive cruise control is not autonomous driving and it is still the driver’s responsibility to be alert and attentive on the road. This function is intended to make your drive easier, but it does not replace the driver behind the wheel.
When it comes to advanced vehicle technology, no one puts more focus on its implementation than Hyundai. Over the years, Hyundai has become a leading automotive brand, delivering on vehicle reliability, durability, advanced technology and affordability. With Hyundai, you’ll never have to compromise on getting everything you want and need in your vehicle.
