CRUISE CONTROL

Holding your foot steady on the accelerator for hours on end is uncomfortable and can lead to your speed creeping up without you realising. Cruise Control takes over the accelerator to maintain a steady speed and stop your leg muscles from cramping.

Holding your foot steady on the accelerator for hours on end is uncomfortable and can lead to your speed creeping up without you realising. Cruise Control takes over the accelerator to maintain a steady speed and stop your leg muscles from cramping.

Cruise Control

How it works

 

  • Two cables connect to the pivot that moves the throttle valve to increase and decrease your speed. One cable is connected to the accelerator. The other is connected to an actuator.

  • A small computer is connected to the pivot and sensors.

  • The sensors tell the computer the speed and throttle position so the chosen speed can be maintained.

Cruise Control - How it works
Cruise Control-Legwork

Does the legwork for you

 

  • With Cruise Control on, the actuator moves the cable connected to the pivot to adjust the throttle. It also pulls on the cable connected to the accelerator, which is why it moves even when you have Cruise Control on.

  • Press the brake and Cruise Control automatically deactivates.
