Cruise control buttons are generally used to adjust the speed of the vehicle to a desired level. However much like cruise control, driver pressure to the accelerator or brake pedal will override the HDC system, although this is generally vehicle design dependent. The basic idea of Hill Descent Control is to insure drivers can be confident that even the ride down hills with slippery or rough terrain will be controlled and safe.
