Development of Laser Radar Cruise Control System
Published October 19, 1998 by Convergence Transportation Electronics Association in United States
The adaptive cruise control (ACC) system reduces the workload of the driver. Lower cost and more precise control are the keys to successfully creating a market with the ACC system. A system that eliminates unexpected acceleration or deceleration caused by incorrect judgment is in high demand. From 1997, the laser radar ACC system has been produced for the domestic version of the Lexus LS400. It provides high recognition capability with a two-dimensional scanning system at an affordable price. Th millimeter wave radar ACC system can perform with better recognition capability, but is quite expensive. While many companies are developing millimeter wave radar ACC systems, we think our laser radar ACC system is superior.
