There is no zero setting on UK spec GolfR, RS6 or indeed Alpina B5.I would love to be wrong on this but if I am, so are VW, Audi and Alpina who confirmed no normal mode.I own the GolfR with ACC so can check. The RS6 I have is not “Adaptive” as unlike the GolfR, ACC is optional
Hmm. On my X3 you hold the “reduce distance” button while it goes from 3 bars to 2, to 1, to “Distance Adaptive Cruise Control Deactivated” = conventional cruise control
People of Twitter. Why might the Golf R be telling me 'ACC deactivated'? Can't use cruise control.
@TheDanProsser You've switched CC off. ACC=Adaptive Cruise Control, the only CC the car has. Switch it off and it'll say "ACC deactivated".
@UKVolkswagen from manual "The engine will restart when the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is active:If the accelerator is depressed.If the vehicle ahead moves further away.If the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is deactivated and the vehicle ahead moves further away.@
I've had it beep like hell and slam brakes on when a car pulled out in front of me before. It would have attempted (but probably massively failed) to stop even without any LiDAR
Park distance control and city stop lidar is deactivated at higher speed, because of massive failure rates. Radar of adaptive cruise control might be able to detect, but filter it as disturbance ... if you do not own a VW prototype nothing would have happened, no beep, no brake!
In modern cars, the cruise control is normally turned off if you hit the brakes, the clutch or if the safety systems (ESP, TCS etc) get even slightly upset. Momentary loss of traction due to snow, ice, aquaplaning or a very uneven/rough surface, will usually trigger deactivation. There are many cars now on the road that augment cruise control with additional systems using RADAR sensors, ultrasound and so on that can help to avoid or mitigate some effects of a collision. For example: adaptive cruise control, driver braking assist, brake pre-approach. Many vehicles with these features are capable of bringing themselves to a complete stop under certain circumstances without any driver input, say if they were unconscious or asleep. In the event of an impact, inertia switch(es) will be activated which at the simplest level even on very old cars will cut off the fuel supply, killing the engine and helping to guard against fuel spill. The inertia switches will also deploy the Supplementary Restraint Systems (SRS) - airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners. Modern cars might have a range of additional safety features that will also kick in such as locking the brakes on to mitigate further collisions, closing the windows and even as far as automatically calling emergency services. In summary - the chances of a car of any age “running away” after an accident with you unconscious inside are very slim.
Cruise control will just maintain the same speed, until you change the speed manually, press the brake or deactivate it. If there's a car braking in front, and you don't do anything. Smash. Adaptive Cruise control will do what it says on the tin. It will adapt to the environment, mostly the car in front. If the car infront slows down, so will yours. If they speed up again, so will yours. All automatically. It will only speed up to the maximum set speed, so if you're following a police car and they suddenly speed off, you won't be joining them on a high speed chase. When used in conjunction with lane assistance, it is a very useful driving tool. My wife's car will almost drive itself on a long road. It will stay in the lane, automatically brake (even in an emergency situation) and automatically accelerate. All you need to do is tell it you're awake every 15 seconds by touching the steering wheel. It's like being chauffeured.
Cruise Control (or speed control) is a system in a vehicle that maintains a particular set speed based on the driver’s input. In other words, it enables the vehicle to travel at a specific speed and the driver is allowed to remove his foot off from the accelerator pedal. It is used mainly in freeways and highways, where one would be able to travel at a constant speed without much interruptions. If required, slowly touching upon the brake pedal should deactivate the system and give back complete vehicle control to the driver. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a step advanced version to traditional cruise control. Adaptive Cruise control takes this a step further by also adapting the speed based on the vehicle in front of it. It is an intelligent form of cruise control that slows down and speeds up automatically to keep pace with the car in front of you. It makes use of more sophisticated sensors like radars, lidar’s to monitor the speed of vehicles in front and behind it. While implementations and capabilities of ACC can widely depend on different vehicle manufacturers, the basic functionality of ACC allows the driver to give vehicle the control in more scenarios, as compare to cruise control. ACC is what you’ll probably find in today’s mid to high end cars while Cruise Control may be an option in lower end cars.
Automatics are: Faster More fuel efficient (allowing for cylinder deactivation) Easier to drive in traffic Easily afford various other features such as: Remote start Adaptive/cruise control
C ,Chrysler and Cadillac, and perhaps others too, have cylinder deactivation systems. In case of Chysler (my brand) the Hemi engines are so equipped. My car has a 5.7L engine that I drove through the mountains from Redding to Grants Pass and took the attached pix to show just how effective this can be. The pix is not all that good but the number is 24.4 mpg. And this on a car weighing in at 4,400 lbs. empty. With a tank of gas, me and some luggage, it goes over 5,000 lbs. Oh, and I was using the adaptive cruise control which maintained the speed up hill or down. -Merlin- PS: Final mpg
Autopilot is effectively “adaptive cruise control” and “lane hold assist”, but of course it is more effective and active than those relatively passive systems. Simply start controlling the car yourself to disable or override it, just as you would with a conventional cruise control system.. Moving the steering wheel or touching the brake will instantly deactivate Autopilot. Pressing the accelerator will temporarily override the speed control portion. Turning on a signal will initiate an automatic lane change (if you have that feature enabled)
An encyclopedia, like Wikipedia is the place to find basic information, not Quora. Autonomous car Level 0: Automated system has no vehicle control, but may issue warnings. Level 1: Driver must be ready to take control at anytime. Automated system may include features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Parking Assistance with automated steering, and Lane Keeping Assistance (LKA) Type II in any combination. Level 2: The driver is obliged to detect objects and events and respond if the automated system fails to respond properly. The automated system executes accelerating, braking, and steering. The automated system can deactivate immediately upon takeover by the driver. Level 3: Within known, limited environments (such as freeways), the driver can safely turn their attention away from driving tasks. Level 4: The automated system can control the vehicle in all but a few environments such as severe weather. The driver must enable the automated system only when it is safe to do so. When enabled, driver attention is not required. Level 5: Other than setting the destination and starting the system, no human intervention is required. The automatic system can drive to any location where it is legal to drive.
Thanks for A2A ; I like the question may be one of the best question in my view and it falls under my favorite category. Most people depend to much on the text books just reading what it says . They do not try to come out of it and try to explore more about it. Ill just say about the topics and its your work to google them :) Engine technologies. Direct injected petrol engines (GDI gasoline direct injection) ,Vigneshwarraj Chandrasekaran's answer to Why are GDI engines not being used in India in place of MPFIs? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both?

Wires from the buttons on the steering wheel go to a slip and from there signals go to the ECU. The ECU collects all of the sensor signals needed to monitor the engine, the transmission gearchange points, vehicle speed, steering angle, brake application etc. From this if you have opted to activate the cruise control for example and indicator light may come on acknowledging that you are in cruise control but is not set. You then bring the vehicle to the speed you want to cruise at and then you press the set button. The ECU will activate the cruise control program and maintain that set speed without any interference from you the driver unless you activate a safety control such as touching the brake pedal or deactivating the cruise control. If you press the brake pedal the cruise control will disengage but remain alert incase you press the resume button. Some vehicles have a feature to slow the vehicle if it is approaching another vehicle faster than the vehicle in front is travelling called adaptive cruise control.
Autonomous cars come in different levels. The SAE has classified the following levels (copied from wiki) SAE automated vehicle classifications: Level 0: Automated system has no vehicle control, but may issue warnings. Level 1: Driver must be ready to take control at any time. Automated system may include features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Parking Assistance with automated steering, and Lane Keeping Assistance (LKA) Type II in any combination. Level 2: The driver is obliged to detect objects and events and respond if the automated system fails to respond properly. The automated system executes accelerating, braking, and steering. The automated system can deactivate immediately upon takeover by the driver. Level 3: Within known, limited environments (such as freeways), the driver can safely turn their attention away from driving tasks. Level 4: The automated system can control the vehicle in all but a few environments such as severe weather. The driver must enable the automated system only when it is safe to do so. When enabled, driver attention is not required. Level 5: Other than setting the destination and starting the system, no human intervention is required. The automatic system can drive to any location where it is legal to drive. Tesla is not offering fully autonomous driving yet, but is offering level 2/3 autonomy. However, Tesla’s latest autopilot hardware is able to support level 5 autonomy, but the current software is not (or at least not enabled to) Uber and Waymo use LIDAR for their vision, while Tesla uses a combination of camera’s, ultrasonics and radar. The advantage for Tesla is the small size and easily integrated components, but the LIDAR is better in detecting obstacles and creating a 360 degrees view, and all Tesla’s vision components have their own disadvantages. But because Tesla is combining the vision of the three methods, the risk of not detecting something is significantly lower than the individual sensors. Costs are a big difference also. Tesla’s hardware is very common and thus cheap. A LIDAR will set you back at least 4000 dollar. Cheaper LIDARs are under development, but do not have the required range and precision yet to be applicable in a self-driving car. So, Tl;dr: Different fundamental concept (car with self-driving capabilities vs self-driving car) Different technologies Costs As extra, see this picture of the different vision systems of the Tesla. You can see it has cameras all round, with different view angles and distances, combined with ultrasonics and radar.
