The controller (42) is in communication with the automation-detector (40). The controller (42) operates the host-vehicle (12) in accordance with an operation-rule (14) that is selected based on the automation-level (16) of the other-vehicle (18). For example, the controller (42) operates the host-vehicle (12) to follow the other-vehicle (18) at a first-distance (44 A) when the automation-level (16) is an autonomous -mode (36), and follow the other-vehicle (18) at a second-distance (44B) greater than the first- distance (44A) when the automation-level (16) is a manual-mode (28), i.e. human-driven.
