Introduction of intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC): a predictive safety system

In 2015 Honda introduced their new intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC) to the market. It is the world's first cut-in prediction system which can anticipate the behavior of other vehicles in a neighboring lane. More precisely, i-ACC can predict if a vehicle is about to change lane from a neighboring lane to the lane of the own vehicle. This way, i-ACC can react earlier than conventional ACC systems and, therefore, ensure increased safety and comfort. In stereotypical situations it can even react before the other vehicle starts moving to the own lane. This means that the system sometimes starts to decelerate before the driver even realizes that a cut-in will take place. Such situations were one reason to carry out a comprehensive subjective evaluation in order to verify the acceptance of i-ACC by test subject drivers. The results of this acceptance test are our focus point in this contribution. We will also compare these results to the outcome of an objective evaluation which was carried out before.
