  • Patent number: 4706195
    Abstract: A speed control system for a motor vehicle automatically controls a throttle valve so as to allow the vehicle to run at a desired velocity at all times. The system includes a laser radar for detecting a preceding vehicle and measuring the distance therefrom, and a control computer in which a proper distance responsive to a vehicle velocity is set. The control computer discriminates proximity to the preceding vehicle through change in the distance at a certain interval. When the distance exceeds the proper distance, the control computer reduces the desired velocity in case proximity to the preceding vehicle is discriminated at a plurality of times continuously and increases the desired velocity in case no such proximity is discriminated, and when the distance is below the proper distance, the computer decelerates the vehicle by directly controlling the throttle valve in the closing direction, allowing tracing running with the proper distance from the preceding vehicle.

  • Patent number: 4328776
    Abstract: A vehicle speed control system includes a first generator for producing an operation signal upon closure of a set switch at a desired vehicle speed and receipt of a timing signal from a second generator responsive to the actual vehicle speed, the operation signal disappearing in response to one of the subsequent timing signals. A first calculator calculates a first time difference between predetermined and instant time periods respectively defined by the desired and actual vehicle speeds, and a second calculator calculates a second time difference between the respective instant time periods. A third generator produces a correction signal defined by the second time difference during generation of the operation signal and produces another correction signal defined by the sum or a difference of the time differences in relation to identical or opposite signs of the time differences after disappearance of the operation signal.
