Predictive Cruise Control works with a navigation system (that has the speed limits as well as start and end points of municipalities stored in map data) and a multifunction camera that recognises traffic signs.
For example, when a car travelling on the motorway enters a conurbation, it decelerates to the speed limit in that zone, before accelerating again to the motorway speed limit on leaving the city.
In addition, the system draws on navigation data to evaluate its location and predictively adjust the speed of the car before an approaching bend, roundabout, or junction.
The driver can deactivate the predictive cruise control function at any time in the infotainment menu or by depressing the brake or accelerator. The predictive function is available only in cars fitted with a multifunction camera with a traffic signs recognition module and a navigation system.
Predictive Cruise Control is available for the ŠKODA SUPERB.
