Adaptive Cruise Control

Updated on 10/24/2018

Activity Overview

Basic cruise control is where the car's computer automatically adjusts the throttle so that the car maintains a constant speed. Adaptive cruise control responds to the car's surrounds, in particular slowing down or accelerating as applicable when the vehicle in front changes it's speed. In this activity students will program the TI-Innovator Rover to respond accordingly when a vehicle or object in front of it changes position.
