The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system automatically adjusts a vehicle's speed to maintain a constant headway between vehicles. A pre-set cruising speed is applied through the automatic adjustment of the throttle by downshifting and/or actuating "feather" braking. A radar headway sensor, hidden behind the grille, detects obstacles ahead and enables the vehicle to travel at a set speed or adapt to the speed of the vehicle in front. An on-board microcomputer processes the radar information and converts the electronic instructions into engine speed or brake pressure.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
