This system curbs sudden acceleration when the driver steps on the accelerator by mistake, by unintentional pedal operation. The system comes into effect if the driver presses the accelerator pedal more than a prescribed amount when the vehicle is stopped and the laser sensor detects an obstacle in front. It checks sudden acceleration by curbing engine output while alerting the driver with an alarm and a warning light displayed on the meter display.
* Acceleration Control for AT may not perform as expected due to factors such as road conditions (tight curves, steep slopes, etc.), bad weather (rain, snow, fog, etc.), and the shape of an obstacle (low, small, narrow, etc.).
