Remember, they're driving assistants, not actual driving systems. Be aware. Let them take some of the load off you, but be aware. I tend to drive in the center lane where the system works the best.

Today driving to work a small empty bag of chips came drifting in front of my vehicle on the freeway going about 62 mph. Got a big red warning that driver intervention was required while using ACC. So glad it did not slam on the brakes as there was another vehicle following me too close. Maybe the computer knew there was a tailing vehicle.

It is ironic this happened to you. On Saturday with an empty Lane in front of me I saw a speeding car coming up quickly behind me. He went around me closely and I received a driver intervention triangle warning. I mentioned to my wife at the time I wasn't sure if the Ipace did that because of the car behind me or did I miss something.

Tip: The moment you hit the brakes or accelerator, or turn the wheel quickly, the Automatic Emergency Braking will turn off on most cars.

Trivia: Some crisps (Brit slang) come in metallized mylar bags. They are great at reflecting microwaves. Radar is how the ACC works, which is microwave spectrum.

Wanted to pose to those that have driven with the adaptive cruise on.

I have been consulting with a friend of mine that has a Model X for 18 months and we have much in common with the adaptive cruise. If we set the follow distance to 4 bars for me, max for him but not sure of the graphiic on the Tesla we both have people cut in front of us causing us to be pushed farther back.

I have noticed that the car despite my following distance setting will wait to brake longer than I would and then brakes more aggressively. Quite honestly is scares the crap out of my wife. I was comparing notes with my fellow Tesla owner and he said it does the same thing with him. He said that after 18th months that sometimes he gets concerned that the car will actually start to stop in-time and he takes over to play it safe. I have had similar experience.

I noticed that the Adaptive cruise icons for the following distance and lane keep assist are the same on the IPace and the 2019 Sante Fe we just picked up to replace our 2003 Expedition. Made me think the technology is licensed from the same company. Based on the performance similarities of my Tesla driving friend, could it be Tesla? Tesla did make many EV patents available. IDK if vehicle control such as adaptive cruise and emergency braking are some patents they owned and made available. Does anyone know the answer to that? And what is your experience with stopping with adaptive cruise. Has anyone used cruise to come upon a vehicle stopped at a light and felt as though the IPace would not stop in time but just trusted the tech?
Up until late 2018 Tesla "Autopilot" was simply their branded version of Mobileye's autosteering technology. After that guy got his head cut off while he was watching a movie instead of driving the car using autopilot, Mobileye got nervous about their liability since Tesla was pushing their technology farther than Mobileye was comfortable with. Since then cars produced by Tesla have their own home grown solution. Mobileye sells a much newer version of their system to lots of OEMs, but Bosch, Continental and others have competitive systems. It took Tesla about two years to catch their own home-built solution up with what Mobileye sold them and to this day its still lacking some features formerly present in the first version of autopilot, such as automatic speed sign detection.

I truly believe most OEM's prefer a "looser" implementation of this tech to make sure drivers aren't doing the kinds of things we see Tesla drivers doing, falling asleep with it on etc, because there is not a chance in **** the hardware/software in our cars isn't every bit as advanced as Tesla's.
