This paper discusses the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system, which is a solution that allows drivers to minimize the amount of time spent driving. It supports four different driving modes and regulates the acceleration and deceleration of the car in order to maintain a fixed speed or avoid a collision with another vehicle. Real-Time Publish-Subscribe (RTPS) middleware has emerged as one of the most efficient and practical options for the real solutions to the difficulties listed above. This paper proposes to develop a real-time system for integrating the various components of ACC, such as Information Cluster, Radar, Brake Switches, Cruise Switches, ACC Controller, Engine/Throttle Controller, Brake Controller, Brake Actuators, Speed Sensors, and Back Brake Lights. The exchange of data is through a RTPS Data Distribution Service (DDS) middleware. The design of the publish/subscribe model was explained in detail in this paper along with the proper Quality of Service (QoS) policies suggested to govern the behavior of the model.
