The short answer is because car manufacturers sell cars to people that buy new cars. They don’t design to appeal to used car buyers. In the 60s, a car that made it to 100,000 miles without extensive repair and expensive replacements was a rarity. Now cars commonly make it to 180,000 miles with little more than tires, batteries, brakes, and oil changes. In days gone by, people that wanted cheap reliable transportation would buy a no frills car, because they could only plan on 60,000 miles of reliable service. Today that buyer gets a Camry with 120,000 miles on it, and expects to get another 60,000. Toyota doesn’t design the car to appeal to him though. They design to sell to the first guy. The first guy wants a more luxurious experience. If he just wanted cheap reliable transportation he would buy a used car too. Today’s new car buyer wants more than just affordability and reliability. Lots of people claim they want a compact truck with manual windows, cruise control, a radio with no bluetooth nonsense and no other frills. The thing is, those buyers never show up on new car lots. They’re looking at 5 year old trucks. The guys that actually show up at dealerships ready to sign on the dotted line for a new vehicle want 17 airbags, back up cameras, 12 speaker radio systems with bluetooth connectivity, heated seats, and adaptive cruise control.
This is a similar technology to all the others in that some form of reliable sensor must be used to accurately detect an object in front and must have the software to determine a closing or opening gap between your vehicle and the vehicle in front. Some early adopters had an issue where if a vehicle turned a corner in front it was too quick to accelerate only to find the vehicle in front closer when you, following turned the same corner. The Subaru system is basically two sensors located either side of the rear vision mirror. Many companies give a name to their system for whatever it is as a copyright for advertising purposes even if a rival uses the same technology but must call it something different. A guide to adaptive cruise control - how it works and why you should be using it | RAC Drive
Resuming cruise speed with conventional cruise control systems does not use the brake pedal. The system uses engine braking to reduce speed should the car exceed set speed. And when accelerating to set speed obviously the brake lights will not illuminate. Only scenario where the ordinary passenger car illuminates the brake lights for itself is in an adaptive cruise control system where it slows down BELOW set speed when traffic in front slows down. When traffic clears the vehicle accelerates back to set speed with no brake lights on.
The adaptive cruise control may not have any interlink with the gearbox; that’s an extra system that adds complexity to the car. Mine (a VW Golf Alltrack) seems not to directly control the gearbox, but if you have the box in “S” mode, it will trigger early downshifts and tend to hold the lower gear. Or you can tap the downshift paddle and put it in manual, that doesn’t cancel cruise control. A relatively light car with a big diesel engine doesn’t really need high RPM to hold quite a steep slope anyway, and I suspect its big and well-cooled brakes won’t get hot enough to care about unless it is a truly monumental slope. But I tend to use manual shifting for steep slopes, which are usually twisty anyway and you do NOT want to use adaptive cruise on a twisty road.
I don’t drive very often, but the last car I rented (over a year ago) had adaptive cruise control. I couldn’t figure out how to set it on the way up to where I was going, but got the hang of it on the trip back. The first half of the trip is on a road with very light traffic and a 100 kph speed limit. The second half was on a road with very heavy traffic and the same speed limit. I figured I could set it and then brake if necessary. It turned out not to be. I found the adaptive system braked faster and smoother than I possibly could. It was a breeze for the first half as it rarely had to slow down when someone passed me (I set it for the speed limit, no faster) and on the heavily trafficked road it was a pleasure to just keep my eyes on the road instead of the speedometer in heavy traffic while keeping my foot in a comfortable position in case I had to hit the brake.
Mine is a Hyundai i20 2019, 7 speed auto (DCT), 100hp There are not too many reviews online (for the 2019 model) so I guess this answer might be helpful for a few people. Pros For a small car, it looks pretty nice It’s loaded with options (cruise control, heated seats, heated side mirrors and steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, backup camera and sensors, lane keep assist, automatic windshield wipers, automatic headlights and high beams, …) It has a 1.0 petrol turbo engine (T-GDI), but it accelerates pretty quickly and has a nice little engine sound (although it’s pretty quiet when not driving sporty) It’s a DCT, meaning I can shift manually if I want to It handles well. It remains very stable even at high speeds (140 km/h and above, don’t ask me how I know) It’s very fuel efficient (on average, 5.5 l/100km / 42 mpg) It has plenty of room for a car of this category The reliability is great 5 year warranty, unlimited mileage Cons Not very good for overtaking at high speeds (100 km/h and above). You can still overtake, but you need a longer distance than with more powerful cars. In terms of options, the only useful and “modern” options missing are adaptive cruise control, blind spot assist and front parking sensors Would be great to have a snow mode for better handling in the snow Crappy start/stop system, always on by default. This is an issue when I stop at roundabouts for a couple of seconds and the engine stops. When this happens, it takes quite some time for the engine to start and get going again, which is not very safe in such situations. Every time I start the car, I have to disable this feature, which is annoying. The infotainment system does have Bluetooth and we can stream music on it, make phone calls, … Although, to use Apple CarPlay, a USB cable is necessary. makes sense, right? So far I’ve done over 33k kms (20k miles) in 11 months and I never had any issue. Let me know if you have any questions. :) Here are a few additional pics:
Cruise control is of two main types: Regular cruise control: This only holds a set speed. You can change it, and the car will change the throttle input to go up or down to that speed. Some automatics will even shift down if they think the car needs engine braking, eg, going downhill(2015+ Hyundai Sonata is a good example). In this case, you are responsible for ensuring that your car isn’t going to hit the car in front, since the system doesn’t know how close you are to them. This system has been in cars for years and is almost universal. Adaptive cruise control: This will hold speed, and a set distance behind the car ahead. It will even bring the car to a complete stop, and set off again if the car in front stops and then moves again, eg, at a light. This kind of setup uses either a dual camera system, or a nose mounted radar to detect the car in front and ensure you don’t hit them. This is a newer system that is becoming more popular in mid range and higher end cars. It’s also sometimes referred to as radar guided cruise control, although there are cars these days that use only cameras for it (Subaru Eyesight). All cruise control systems disengage once you hit the brakes or the clutch (in a manual)
A high-end car today may have nearly a 100 million lines of code — ,according to this article,, 14 times more than a Boeing 787 Dreamliner (7 million) — spread across 100 or more separate microcontrollers. Even a mainstream auto has probably 50 microcontrollers and 10 million lines of code. At CES 2016, ,Ford announced, they have 150 million lines of code in their latest version of the F150. Those numbers, particularly for automobiles and trucks, include not just the auto-pilot features, but all the systems in the car such as engine control and entertainment centers. I’m not sure what’s all included in the 787 numbers. But still. Airplanes have had ,autopilots ,for many years. They are designed to keep the plane level, using an ,inertial guidance system,, and on course, based on the desired heading and either signals from the ground (in the past using ,LORAN-C,, now using satellite navigation such as ,GPS,). But they don’t have to worry about other vehicles or other obstacles directly ahead, behind, or beside them. Automobile ,autonomous driving systems, are actually more complex. They range from ,adaptive cruise control,, to ,lane-keeping assist,, all the way up to completely self-driving vehicles, such as ,Waymo self-driving taxis,, currently being tested in my area (near Phoenix, AZ). Autonomous vehicles use a combination of ,lidar,, radar, and cameras to make their way among traffic, and GPS for navigation. A year ago we bought a Subaru Impreza which has three separate LCD screens for the driver. It also has a system called ,Eyesight, which uses two cameras located on either side of the front mirror, and can pick up lane markings so that if I should start to wander outside of a lane, it will actually steer itself back into the middle. Plus it has front and rear collision avoidance systems, and adaptive cruise control (follows the car in front of me). So there is a lot of image processing going on here.
Adaptive Cruise Control is a highly advanced system that is just one more step to autonomous vehicles. It is a convenient feature, especially on road trips on the motorway. Most cars use forward radar sensors, generally mounted behind the front upper or lower grilles, that use highly advanced technologies such as multiple-beam radar. These radar sensors enhance the standard cruise control system, by automatically maintaining a distance from the vehicle directly ahead by automatically handling braking and acceleration. The driver can customize the system based on preference, such as being able to choose from several following distance settings. Increasingly however, more cars are offering a Stop and Go function, which also handles braking and accelerating in heavy traffic situations, while being able to bring the car to a full stop and holding it there until traffic begins moving again. Due to many vehicles on the road, Adaptive Cruise Control systems vary, from use of technologies, sensors, and functionality. Subaru is an example because unlike radar sensors, they use dual stereoscopic, forward looking cameras for all forward driver assist systems, including Adaptive Cruise Control, dubbed the EyeSight system.
