Adaptive Cruise Control
Stay safely at a distance, even in stop-and-go traffic.
Scania ACC (adaptive cruise control) assists the driver in maintaining a constant time gap to vehicles ahead, and warns the driver if the distance closes suddenly. The preferred time gap can be set in five steps, the settings for which are indicated in the main instrument.
Scania's ACC system analyses road speed, data from the engine, Scania Retarder and wheel brakes to maintain the pre-set time gap. It also alerts the driver when the gap closes rapidly, but never takes over completely. This is to avoid inattention caused by overconfidence in the system. At present, Scania ACC is available on long-haul tractor units equipped with Scania Retarder.
