yes, sorta. there are a couple of systems out there--volvo's newest one is designed primarily for low speeds (under 19 mph), whereas quite a few mfr's have accident avoidance type braking systems coupled with their laser cruise control (obviously two very different applications). i learned today that the mdx has the latter, but not the former. i also checked out the volvos (xc60 - too small, and xc90 - none of the xc60's new safety equipment), so i'm pretty much done with that line for now.
