Or the car just decides to brake because the sun reflected off the wet road surface. Or the car just decides to brake just because it can.

I have driven thousands of miles on ACC in my Volvo, which uses a camera-radar sensor combination, and have never experienced either of these problems. Even if the camera vision is obscured by sunlight for some reason, the radar sensor wouldn't be.
