Porsche developing an advanced cruise control system that can corner – Report

Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will add “excitement” to the semi-autonomous driving concept.

Porsche is currently working on an advanced cruise control system that is capable of cornering upto 0.70g, a value that will have normal passengers grimacing inside the cabin.

Called the InnoDrive system, it behaves like a modern semi-autonomous cruise control system, but also analyzes the grade of the pavement and the radius of the turn.

Called the InnoDrive system, it behaves like a modern semi-autonomous cruise control system, but also reads two sets of data from the onboard navigation software – the grade of the pavement and the radius of the turn. The computers then perform the necessary calculations and determines the speed for efficient cruising and perfect 0.50-g turns. The only role that driver has is to steer the vehicle.

Other than injecting a hint of excitement into a boring feature, Porsche believes that the Innodrive system can help cars reach from A to B in the fastest and most fuel efficient manner. They claim that Innodrive can diminish real-world fuel consumption by 10 percent while shortening drive time by 2 percent.

With the Innodrive system, Porsche is trying to convince people that by decelerating less around corners (followed usually by quick acceleration), the car consumes lesser amount of fuel.
