Bosch Adaptive Cruise Control
Cool Product Report


RF Cafe Cool Product - Bosch's Adaptive Cruise Control videoFor many years I have wondered why cruise controls in vehicles did not include a braking function that would be able to maintain speed when going downhill or being impeded by multilane traffic. Well, it appears Bosch, TRW, Delphi, and others already thought of that and have solutions in their Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) systems. This particular video is of the Bosch system. A mm-wave radar unit measures distance and relative speed to feed data to the microprocessor that determines when to apply the brakes or when to give it the gas. ACC is smart enough to compensate for rapidly varying traffic speeds, as well as for lane changes and even going around corners. An ability to monitor vehicles in multiple lanes is incorporated into it decision making. High-end auto makers like Lexus, Audi, Mercedes, et al, have been offering it for a few years. The low-end heaps I can afford are still waiting for a price reduction; I will be tapping the brakes and mashing the Resume button myself for many more years.



The inventions and products featured on these pages were chosen either for their uniqueness in the RF engineering realm, or are simply awesome (or ridiculous) enough to warrant an appearance.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
