how does Mazda Radar Cruise Control work

With all of the advanced safety technology now available in cars, many of you may be curious to learn about the elements behind these features and how they work. For instance, here, you can get a better idea about how Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) functions in Mazda vehicles.

The technology behind Mazda Radar Cruise Control

Using a millimeter wave radar, MRCC is able to judge the relative speed of and distance from the car ahead of you. As the driver, you set your car’s designated speed range, and MRCC automatically adjusts to maintain a safe following distance behind the car in front. Not only does this help relieve some of the burden of drivers during long trips, but it also helps reduce the risk of accidents by maintaining a safe distance between cars. MRCC includes a Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS), which allows drivers to be aware of important safety considerations.

Other Mazda active safety technologies

In addition to MRCC, Mazda offers a number of other active safety technologies that are designed to help prevent accidents on the road. These include:

  • Adaptive front-lighting system
  • High-beam control system
  • Adaptive LED headlight
  • Driver attention alert
  • Lane-keep assist system
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Hill launch assist
  • Rear vehicle monitoring
