Adaptive Cruise Control
Collision Warning System
All of this information goes into a chip that uses high-end decision-making software. If the driver does something that it perceives is dangerous, such as approaching a car that is traveling slower or is stopped, a series of warnings will alert the driver in hopes of giving them time to react and avoid an accident. Engineers are still working on making sure that external sensors can recognize the difference between other moving vehicles and things like parked cars and oncoming traffic.
