Does autoware support dynamic objects following(ACC)?

As far as I know, autoware provides several algorithms for waypoints planner, which output /final_waypoints. But I have only seen these algorithms applied to static objects(demo videos), so I wonder whether they can be applied to dynamic objects following(similar to adaptive cruise control). Or are there other dedicated modules for doing this? Any help would be appreciated.

The velocity_set package uses lidar data to detect objects which are within a specified radius of the upcoming waypoints. If a vehicle is in the intended path of your testing vehicle, it will be detected by velocity_set and stop a (configurable) distance from that obstacle. If the obstacle (vehicle) then moves away, your vehicle will begin moving forward again until the gap between the vehicles is below a specific threshold, and then stop. However, this only truly works (and has been tested in) very low-speed environments and is more of a TJA (traffic-jam-assist) than a real ACC.

Thanks for the response. It's clear and helpful.
