TACC Traffic-Aware-Cruise-Control

Traffic-Aware Cruise Control uses a camera

mounted on the windshield behind the interior
rear view mirror and a radar sensor in the
center of the front grill to detect whether
there is a vehicle in front of you in the same
lane. If the area in front of Model S is clear,
Traffic-Aware Cruise Control is designed to
drive consistently at a set speed. When a
vehicle is detected, Traffic-Aware Cruise
Control is designed to slow down Model S if
needed to maintain a selected time-based
distance from the vehicle in front, up to the
set speed. Traffic-Aware Cruise Control does
not eliminate the need to watch the road in
front of you and to apply the brakes if needed.
Traffic-Aware Cruise Control makes it easy to
maintain a consistent time-based distance
from a vehicle travelling in front of you in the
same lane. Traffic-Aware Cruise Control is
primarily intended for driving on dry, straight
roads, such as highways and freeways. It
should not be used on city streets
