A patent is not a marketable system. All the ACC systems I know do not detect stationary objects, but I would be keen to learn about exisitng systems which do.I thought that too till I researched more about the current research on the different systems. And Unfortunately that’s not true. Patent WO2014182765A1 by Bosch should be the reason. And if they don’t pay for it (most likely veoneer) then they cannot use it. But the fact that it works half of the time makes me wonder if they are actually preparing something (slowly merging development branches).
It’s due time for a new Pilot Assist (4) Version anyway (some Volvos already have map based curve acceleration via software update (and that’s 3 plus the unlocked feature) and a V60 that I used last year for a few days had far better Lane Keeping (should be same Veoneer cam). I’m wondering what polestars plan is anyway. This far it does not feel like they are actually trying to push the boundaries and be ahead of Volvo (or some OEMs).
Map based speed adjustments are a total different topic. It was interesting to drive through a round-about without tocuhing gas or brake with the Audi-system, but I never really used the system as it was way too conservative
I gave up on hoping for PS to be innovative some time ago. Especially now, as they seem to be in stabilization mode, I do not expect any real innovations - at least not in the PS2.
