adaptive cruise control

The Economist has a small story about this wonderful new technology called adaptive cruse control. Basically, you can sit in traffic and the car will automatically adjust its speed to the car in front to maintain a set distance. However, the article doesn't point out that this is not a new concept at all. I've been using transportation that maintains a constant distance from the car in front of me for years. It’s called a train.
