Sometimes knowing when to stop is much more important than knowing how to go. Today, one of the most significant advances in driver-assistance technology is adaptive cruise control that offers automatic stop and/or automatic stop-and-go functionality.
In contrast to adaptive cruise control systems that don’t function at low speeds, the more sophisticated systems can take your car to a complete stop automatically when needed. With the additional “go” functionality, they will also accelerate from a stop on their own when traffic indicates that is safe. A boon for bumper-to-bumper driving, adaptive cruise control with an auto-stop function will make such driving much less demanding and tedious.
