Adaptive cruise control is for when you’re driving at a steady pace and the vehicle does the driving for you. This safety feature prevents car collisions at high speeds and prevents speeding on busy lanes.

ACC can be either be a radar or laser-based system, which is then integrated with the engine to slow the vehicle down and maintain a slower speed. When the path is clear, the vehicle will be allowed to accelerate again.
