I have been trying to understand the limits of the Intelligent Cruise Control. My trust in the system is building, however I have detected a limit where I am wondering if it by design or a defect.

When a car in front of me (within a certain distance) slows down and stops, the cruise control correctly stops the car.

The question is when the car is outside of the limit and stops the cruise control completely ignores the car. Even when eventually the car comes into range of the car, the cruise control ignores the car.

I have found it rather disturbing that I am accelerating towards a group of stopped cars and the indicator for the cruise control doesn't indicate that there are any cars in front of mine.

Anyone have similar experience or and way of getting the cruise control to recognize stopped traffic?

I've found the limits quite easy to discern: it only detects moving objects. The crash protection will kick in for stopped objects at a very close distance though. For cruise control the only time I've found when it doesn't detect a moving object is when I change lanes and there is a car very close in the new lane than was in the lane I was originally in. I don't mind this though because if I'm changing lanes I'm fully paying attention anyway---especially when changing lanes to a lane with a car very close. It works fine though when a car changes lanes into my lane.

I have found when the highway traffic ahead of me is stopped, the ICC doesn't detect a car.

Also when the moving car is above 200m away and comes to a stop, it doesn't ever detect that car.

Pg 5-62 of the owners manual:

The ICC system does not control vehicle speed or warn you when you approach stationary and slow moving vehicles. You must pay attention to vehicle operation to maintain proper distance from vehicles ahead when approaching toll gates or traffic congestion.



It monitors average speeds of cars in front and sudden changes. It can't always pick up a stopped car. Just an aid in driving - not a substitute.

Gee, you mean I have to actual pay attention when I'm driving? I guess it's another reason to downgrade the car. How gauche!:D

Wow - salty on a Sunday morning eh? ;) :D

I just figured I would post that since it is in the manual. I think the OP is just trying to get a handle on what to expect, not let the car drive itself.

I actually find that the forward warning collision system on my Q is not really great at picking up cars in front of me. I would say it's about 70% give or take.

I have yet to let the car brake and go for me other than the ICC which works very well for me. I think the extra distance on the highway gives more time for the radar to pick up the cars in front. Suburban streets have been hit or miss with the forward collision system (no pun intended).

may answer some simple questions
ICC works great, just get used to it
What the Q50 Deluxeomonic Tech Package is missing: a HUD displaying the limitations and performance of each Nanny. I mean... how else will one know? They could be color coded for each feature, with Nanny raising her cane and voicing "Be careful Sonny" (or other registered name) as you approach the limits of each. Of course, there could be multiple Nannies across the windshield, as needed.

Could we have a Photoshop wiz create a visual, please?

JKAY, I wasn't knocking you. Actually, the opposite. My zing was at the people who complain that the car doesn't do everything for them, without them thinking. Reading the manual sure does eliminate some of those complaints, doesn't it. The car obviously does have some problems, some very important, but it seems like half the complaints or questions on here could be eliminated with a little reading(or lowering the expectations that the car is a 2024 model).:D

I knew exactly what you were doing. I always get a laugh at your facetiousness (threw in a big word for ya ;) )

After I read MY post, I figured I would restate so the OP didn't think his/her point was missed.

There is a learning curve to these technologies.

And for the post about an old lady with a cane yelling at you in a HUD - it would be great to download various character voices off the Internet like one of the GPS companies do. Having an old lady yelling at you in Yoda's voice would be awesome :D

For those of you that haven't seen this, it's actually pretty cool.

I have had my car for 2 weeks and the car has been in being repaired since Thursday; so I am not an expert yet ... sorry for asking the folks with more experience for their experiences.

I have been reading these forums for the last couple of days and the attitude that is being conveyed in these forums and convey in this thread is nothing I want to be part of. How do I go about deleting my identity?

This should have been gone over when the sales consultant did the delivery. It is called MOD (moving object detection) and will only work if the car can read a moving object in front of you. The technology is still being worked on and should be able to work for stopped vehicles in years to come. It works really well in stop and go traffic and if you're just cruising on the freeway, but I would avoid using it if there is no one around because if someone cuts you off that you didn't see, or you're coming up to a stopped vehicle, it will not stop for you. ICC will work 0-90 mph and I believe the three settings you can set for distance are 120,90, and 60 feet.
