Volvo Adaptive Cruise Control

What Is Volvo Pilot Assist?

Volvo Pilot Assist is the next generation of adaptive cruise control technology that will automatically make subtle adjustments to the steering to help keep you and your Volvo centered in the lane. Active from a standstill up to 80 mph, Pilot Assist steering support can function in both stop-and-go traffic, as well as on the highway. By providing assistance in braking, accelerating, and now steering, Volvo Pilot Assist can help reduce stress and fatigue while behind the wheel.

What's the Difference Between Pilot Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control?

Pilot Assist works in conjunction with the Adaptive Cruise Control system. The standard Volvo Adaptive Cruise Control system utilizes a camera and radar sensor to constantly scan the road ahead and will automatically adjust your speed relative to the vehicle ahead of you. Pilot Assist takes this technology a step further by providing steering assistance to help keep your Volvo in its lane. Now on its second generation, Pilot Assist no longer needs a car to follow for the steering assist to function.
