Several car manufacturers currently offer adaptive cruise control systems (i.e. Infiniti's "Intelligent Cruise Control") whereby laser is used to determine distance between the vehicle ahead and to control speed based upon driver's settings.
I have personally detected such laser signals (often from Infiniti FX vehicles) on my V1. Prior to realizing that there were such laser cruise control systems being used, I had thought that it was the certain xenon headlights that caused my V1 to go off (just like certain GMC SUV high-mount brake lights would as well). In one particular instance cruising on the highway, my V1's laser alert kept going off at equal intervals for miles. I recognized the type of vehicle behind me to be the FX and verified his use of laser cruise control by changing lanes and back.
My question to all is what is the effect of laser jamming on these cruise control systems? If the type of laser used for adaptive cruise control is of the same wavelength as a laser gun's, such that the V1 or other detector will alert to it,
how will jammer signals be interpreted by these cruise control systems? Will they render the systems ineffective to the point where the vehicle may not slow down if it gets too close? Furthermore is there current technology that is able to discern the difference between laser-gun laser and cruise-control laser?
