Modern (european atleast) trucks have fuel optimal cruise control logic. They use GPS with maps with detailed topographic maps to determine when to ease of the throttle to maximize the gain from coasting and optimize the speed profile over a hill to minimize fuel consumption while maintaining roughly the correct average speed.

Search for Scania Active Prediction or Volvo I-see... It would be awesome with something like that for passenger cars!
