- You are not supposed to use ACC... on anything but highways that don't have lights and stop signs).
Important information, to be sure, but I find the triple negative hard to follow.
I take it to mean: "Never use ACC on roads with lights and stop signs".
Well, most importantly isn't that I understand it, so, I've revised it to hopefully make it clearer for everyone else. Thank you both for your input. Please let me know what you think:There is nothing wrong with the triple negative way to convey the message.
On the other hand, what’s implied by your version is ...it’s ok to use it on a highway with stop signs or it’s ok to use on one with lights but just not a highway with both lights and stop signs.
Having done this and find it works quite well (of course not recognizing or stopping for the stop signs or red lights) I'm missing the why.
- Do not use Adaptive Cruise Control to enter or exit a highway, or on traffic controlled streets (eg: Do NOT use it on any roads that have stop signs, and/or traffic lights)...
It does not recognize stop signs, traffic lights or yield signs. Also, it takes longer to recognize stopped cars (such as ones stopped at a stop light). And, also, in the event one exits a highway while it is engaged, the car may accelerate onto the exit ramp at speeds beyond the safe exit speed. There are other reasons as well.Having done this and find it works quite well (of course not recognizing or stopping for the stop signs or red lights) I'm missing the why.
This is a very active forum site.Don't know if this forum is active or not to answer my questions.
Is there a way to keep the adaptive cruise.on after stopping for a few seconds? When stopping, it waits a few seconds and beeps and kicks itself off. Is there a way to enable it to always stay on so that if you are in stop and go traffic it will remain running
Thank you in advance
Now consider how well level three autonomous vehicles will perform given the realities of the road conditions. The cities and towns have a difficult enough time focusing our tax dollars on potholes let alone lane markings our embedded sensors. Consider that maybe your town does an adequate job but the next town over or one you are traveling to does not.So now that the winter is on its way out, the lane keep has started recognizing lane markers again, but it constantly turns off and back on as the lines here are worn away. It will be months before they paint them again, just in time for the snow to return, lol!
Through the winter the system is often off as it can’t find any markings so I just let I do it’s thing. I almost lost control once however as it picked up some packed snow and ice on the road and tried to send me towards the ditch! It was the start of a turning lane for a trucking company on a road in an 80km/hr speed zone.
I think I’ll be turning the system off next winter.
I recall all the autonomous hype that promised fully autonomous vehicles by now.I can’t see how any autonomous system could ever work here. Our roads are terrible and markings even worse.
I personally don’t have much use for any of the fancy electronics but see the safety benefits overall. But as I found out, these systems still need some work. Luckily I have fast reflexes and was able to countersteer and the awd /traction control kept us from sliding.
I also feel that these automated parking features allow folks to become less aware of their vehicle dimensions and whereabouts. I still use my mirrors for parking while my kids enjoy watching the backup camera.
