Current adaptive cruise controllers can use radar sensors to follow a vehicle ahead at high speeds (40+ mph), but reach their limits if the vehicle ahead must slow down or stop, requiring the driver to resume control over the car’s speed. This project explores how to create low-speed adaptive cruise controllers that can safely operate in congested traffic.
