Car manufacturers have done crash testing for decades. With self-driving on the horizon, it's crucial we also test the reliability of the software.
People that drive slow and then speed up only when you start to pass them have a special place in hell reserved just for them
Adaptive cruise control can cause some of this. They slow down due to traffic in front and then speed up as it opens up. You are behind them at first and then get upset as they speed up thinking its done on purpose to upset you.
But if the driver has to pay attention, that defeats the purpose of an "autopilot" system. Tesla might as well call it what it actually is: adaptive cruise control and lane assist.
Yep. That won’t happen with me because I spend 10-15 hours on the freeway weekly. I love people that try cutting me off the one lane when I have my adaptive cruise control set at 80. I be flooring it on purpose just so that won’t happen.
No...1st, not everyone needs to be limited by Darwin's laws fools. If you operate a machine out of its intended purpose, you have sole responsibility. Get over it.2nd, Cars have had adaptive cruise control for years, yet nobody other than the driver is responsible, if you crash
I don't think I'd be able to use Autopilot. I wouldn't trust it, so I'd be watching it like a hawk, and at that point, I might as well just do the driving myself.
The purpose of Autopilot (bad name) isn't to drive for you, it's to prevent some accidents that you would otherwise make. Just like adaptive cruise control in cars - it's greatly helpful to ease your mental "driving stress" but you sometimes still have to change speed on your own
Two excellent answers, so far. But they missed the physics of the issue. Slipstream - Wikipedia When one truck passes another, often painfully slowly because it has to beat its way through the bow wave of air coming from the front of the truck being passed, it immediately hits a new problem. The curse of the slipstream. The turbulent air behind the truck is acting with a suction effect on the truck behind. This has two inescapable results The truck in front is now towing the truck behind to all intents and purposes The truck behind, unencumbered by similar drag, will have either to overtake or else to fall back The problem is made worse by speed limiters. It might never be possible to program a simple speed limiter to obey an exact speed. I've been out of professional driving for 14 years, but I hope that new wagons are now supplied with adaptive cruise control (,Autonomous cruise control system - Wikipedia,)
A difference between cruise control on a hybrid or pure electric car and on a conventional car is that it will hold to the set speed even when descending a hill. A conventional car will accelerate above the set speed if you’re going down a hill to the extent you may have to touch the brakes which of course disengages the cruise control. A car with regenerative braking will use it to provide some braking effect as you descend the hill and keep your speed under control. There is of course a limit to this effect: a pure electric car may be able to keep under control without using friction brakes on even a steep descent but a hybrid with a small battery and small motor/generator may reach its limits sooner. Some non-plugin hybrids have such small motors that any regen they do get can be pretty much ignored for the purpose of braking (though it will be useful to charge battery). Now to the adaptive part. In normal traffic my i3 will apply power or regenerative braking as it needs to maintain a suitable distance behind the car in front. However it isn’t good at anticipating, so if I come up behind a stationary traffic queue it doesn’t start braking until later than ideal and will end up applying friction brakes as it comes to a very abrupt halt. To avoid this I’ll usually anticipate and cancel the cruise control before reaching the traffic queue so I can allow the normal regenerative braking to do the work. Our hybrid (BMW 225xe) doesn’t have the adaptive cruise control option, but it does use regenerative braking in the same way as the i3 except you have to actually use the brake pedal to get it (it simulates normal automatic creep and will pretty much maintain speed with feet off the pedals unlike the i3 which has no creep and substantial braking without touching the brake pedal). In all cases both vehicles blend regenerative and friction braking seamlessly, it’s never something you really have to be aware of as a driver though when they are used you can hear friction brakes that have not been used recently squeaking. Original question “Does adaptive cruise on a hybrid car use regenerative braking?”
Embedded Systems: ,An embedded system is a programmed controlling and operating system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system A large number of highly influential trends for embedded systems players are visible in the fields of telecommunications, aerospace, defense, and healthcare. Each of these fields is making greater usage of embedded systems to perform complex functions with high accuracy. The scope of embedded systems grows even further with the inception of the Internet of things concept. The growing need for smart electronics and connected devices across various industries in the world is giving rise to a heavy demand for efficient embedded systems. Embedded systems is a field derived through a combined study of software and hardware. Both aspects come together to create a functional targeting device that possesses the advantages of adaptability, speed, accuracy, reliability, power, and smaller size. Embedded systems possess a wide array of utility in the fields of mobile communication, electronic payment solutions, railways, aeronautics, and automobiles.

No. While they certainly are bought to boost status, they also do a lot to fund research and development. Things that are initially expensive and only found in high end cars, often work it’s way down into more basic cars. For instance, adaptive cruise control was once a luxury item, and now is found in most new cars.
I believe with future self-driving cars, it will be an Adaptive Cruise Control. It sees you passed a 55 mph speed limit sign and automatically goes 55 unless an object in front is going slower then it’ll go slower. Eventually these Adaptive Cruise Controls will be in every car and you’ll be obeying the law correctly. Though that also poses a danger as many drivers prefer going 70 to 90 in a 55 dodging traffic going the speed limit. They prefer going very fast for entertainment purposes.
Tesla Cars ,are not, self-driving. Tesla cars, are not, autonomous, despite what they call it for marketing purposes. Tesla cars ,are not, sentient. Tesla cars ,are, ,not, robots Tesla cars, have not, been programmed to make moral, or even utilitarian, decisions about what to do in an accident at best, they can be described to have Cruise Control Plus, essentially adaptive cruise control and lane guard. They use radar to gauge distances, and use cameras around the car to gauge traffic, to read speed signs, to see lane markings. Plus they have an always-on Internet connection with access to maps, speed limits etc. All they can do is drive safely, within the speed limit, staying away from other cars, keeping in lane. A Tesla can not and will not be able to make a decision between saving its driver or anything else. A Tesla doesn’t even ”know“ it’s a car. It barely knows there’s a driver (only as much as it knows to remind the driver to pay attention to the road). It is completely unaware of itself and its own Integrity (as was seen in some recent accidents where the car wasn’t even aware it had its own roof ripped off). It has no sense of self-preservation, or duty towards its occupants.
Adaptive cruise control as the name suggests it adapts to different speed and doesn't always run at the set speed It uses various parameters like distance of the vehicle running up front ,relative speed of the vehicle, speed limit of the road, etc. If you have set the cruise speed to 60kph and the car at front is travelling at 50kph then you will be automatically slowed down to 50kph and it won't increase the speed unless you change the lane or the car at front acclerates. And if your car is travelling at 60kph and suddenly the car at front slows down or an another car unexpectedly changes in your lane, this would reduce your speed as necessary. This is achived with Laser and Radar. Most modern cars have this facility for safety purpose. Mercedes uses cameras to detect speed limit sign board along the highways to limit the car’s cruising speed to the mentioned speed limit.
This is currently unknown. First of all, it isn't yet legal to operate a self-driving car, except for experimental purposes. And even this use is limited to three states in the U.S. and on a per-vehicle-basis in Germany. Second, a driver must be in the car at all times, according to current laws. By "driverless", I take you to mean operating without a human backup. Third, the technology is still not there yet. There are many hurdles to overcome. You might find this series of articles on Forbes to be of interest. It discusses the disruptions this technology will cause and the barriers to entering the market; although it does not predict a date, as you requested. Fasten Your Seatbelts: Google's Driverless Car Is Worth Trillions (Part 1) There are a wide range of predictions, collected for easy reading (by source) on Wikipedia: ,Autonomous car #Official Predictions, Here is the bullet item list: or automobile manufacturers and technology companies have made numerous predictions for the development of autonomous car technology in the near future. By 2014, ,Israeli, company ,Mobileye, expects to release semi-autonomous car technology. By 2015, Audi plans to market vehicles that can autonomously steer, accelerate and brake at lower speeds, such as in traffic jams. By 2015, Cadillac plans vehicles with "super cruise": autonomous steering, braking and lane guidance. By 2015, Nissan expects to sell vehicles with autonomous steering, braking, lane guidance, throttle, gear shifting, and, as permitted by law, unoccupied self-parking after passengers exit. By Mid-2010's, Toyota plans to roll out near-autonomous vehicles dubbed Automated Highway Driving Assist with Lane Trace Control and Cooperative-adaptive Cruise Control. By 2016, ,Tesla, expects to develop technology that operates autonomously for 90 percent of distances driven. By 2016, Mobileye expects to release fully autonomous car technology. By 2018, Google expects to release their autonomous car technology. By 2020, Volvo envisages having cars in which passengers would be immune from injuries. By 2020, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Nissan and BMW all expect to sell autonomous cars. By 2025, Daimler expects autonomous vehicles on the market. Clearly there are assumptions about the laws being changed to allow autonomous vehicles. But that is a big assumption, I think. And these vehicles are driver-backup, not driverless.
It could. Here's one example that immediately comes to mind: Consider that one of the biggest energy wasters on the car is the brakes. They literally take energy that was used to accelerate the car, or, perhaps more correctly, to prevent the car from decelerating, and convert it to heat, which is then dissipated into the air (100% wasted, in this context). Depending on the situation, you might be inclined to use the brakes to slow as you approach a slower moving car, while the ever vigilant adaptive cruise anticipates a bit sooner and simply eases up on the throttle. Less energy is wasted through an otherwise unnecessary application of the brakes. That said, the energy savings, while real, is probably not huge. I wouldn't recommend opting for adaptive cruise for the purpose of saving gas.
My dad has a 2017 Ford F150 with this feature. It basically is just like cruise control except it can also brake and utilizes radar sensors around the vehicle to sense vehicles ahead of it to slow down when the cars in front slow down and then speed back up automatically.
