Read it discussed on another forum. Concept is straight forward, need drive train RPM sensor, not engine RPM as transmission changes ratios, and final control element to manipulate engine throttle. A user interface is needed to turn on and off and set desired cruise speed.

Most discussion was on safety and liability of such a DIY concept, there are risks to such an application. Some posters thought that buying aftermarket devices would be the more safe way to go.

Good luck
