Hyundai announces the development of the world’s first Machine Learning Smart Cruise Control, matching drivers’ behaviours and patterns.
We’ve all got used in recent years to the ADAS gubbins lurking behind the front of our cars, delivering information back to the car and allowing stuff like pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control to function.
But the Adaptive Cruise, although clever, is also a little dumb as it takes the parameters you set – like distance from the car in front – and applies that whatever the traffic situation.
But now Hyundai is planning the next route for Adaptive Cruise with Machine-Learning Smart Cruise Control ( SSC ML) which will analyse your driving patterns and behaviour to create a custom Smart Cruise profile.
Having analysed how you drive, the SCC will determine the three key areas – following distance, acceleration and responsiveness – and deliver an automatic cruise that mimics how you would drive.
Woongjun Jang, Hyundai VP, said:
The new SCC-ML improves upon the intelligence of the previous ADAS technology to dramatically improve the practicality of semi-autonomous features.
Hyundai Motor Group will continue the development efforts on innovative AI technologies to lead the industry in the field of autonomous driving.
Hyundai say the SSC system can understand 10,000 different driving patterns, but it can also judge unsafe driving patterns. So if you’re in the habit of tailgating on the motorway, it won’t play.
Hyundai say that SSC ML is on its way in production cars.
