Honda Accord – Adaptive Cruise Control with Low Speed Follow
Honda’s Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow helps maintain a constant vehicle speed and distance away from the vehicle in front of you without the need to keep your foot on the brake or the gas pedal. The system is being demonstrated on the 2020 Honda Accord EX-L.
Adaptive Cruise Control
ACC uses a camera located behind the rear-view mirror to monitor if a vehicle ahead of you enters the pre-set ACC range. If a vehicle is detected doing so, the ACC system maintains or decelerates your vehicle’s set speed in order to keep the vehicle’s set following-interval from the vehicle ahead.
To adjust the interval between you and the vehicle detected in front of you, there is an Interval button located on the steering wheel. Each time you press the button, the following-interval setting cycles through extra-long, long, middle, and short following-intervals.
When a vehicle whose speed is slower than your set speed is detected in front of you, your vehicle starts to slow down. If a vehicle detected ahead of you slows down abruptly or if another vehicle cuts in front of you, the beeper sounds and a message appears on the driver information interface.
Low Speed Follow
Low Speed Follow uses a camera located behind the rear-view mirror and a radar sensor to detect the vehicle in front of you and maintain a safe, pre-set distance between you and the car ahead of you as they adjust their speed.
When ACC is activated, Low Speed Follow will automatically decelerate and bring the vehicle to a stop if the vehicle ahead of you changes their speed and comes to a stop. When ACC with Low Speed Follow slows your vehicle by applying the brakes, your vehicle’s brake lights will illuminate.
