Sometimes termed ACC (adaptive cruise control), an automated system that uses remote-sensing technol­ogy, such as radar, LiDAR, or image sensing, to detect obstacles on the roadway and adjust speed accordingly. Like conventional cruise control, the goal is to maintain a set speed. But unlike conventional cruise control, TACC will sense an object, such as a slower-moving car in front of the vehicle, and adjust speed accordingly to avoid a collision.
