More and more Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADASs) are entering the market for improving both safety and comfort. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is an ADAS application that has high interaction with the driver. ACC systems use limited sensor input and have only few configuration possibilities. This may result in the behaviour of the ACC not matching user's preferences in all cases, resulting in lower acceptance of the system. In this work, we examine the possibilities for a Personalised ACC (PACC), which adapts the ACC settings such that it matches the driver preference in order to increase the acceptance. The driver preferred ACC behaviour is predicted using machine learning techniques and manual driving data. On-road experiments showed that the method is promising as it is able to discriminate between two preference clusters with an accuracy of 85%.
