Traffic Eye Cruise Control

This system maintains a fixed distance from the preceding vehicle, detected by a millimeter-wave radar. If the preceding vehicle accelerates, the truck will accelerate within the range of speed that has been set. The driver can set the speed and distance between vehicles with the switches on the control panel. A speed of 30 km/h or higher can be set. If the speed of the truck falls below 15 km/h, this function is cancelled.
