Our project is based around the ACC(Adaptive Cruise Control) system, where we are adding on to it. Like ACC the car will follow the car in front of it from one of 3 preset distances. With the addition of stopping and starting the car when traffic comes to a standstill. The car uses radar to detect the cars in front of the vehicle and may have a camera that can be used for lane keeping.
In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in the autonomous self-driving car industry. An increasing number of manufacturers are competing to implement new features for safety and luxury. Initial advances in driver assist systems achieved level 1 autonomous driving, which includes warnings on the dash, detectors on the sides of the vehicle to detect vehicles while changing lanes, and cruise control for a constant set speed. In the past few years, we've seen many companies trying to achieve higher levels of autonomous driving. The Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) aims to achieve level 2 autonomous driving by controlling the vehicle's acceleration and highway steering assistance.
