What sort of mythical, magical camera is this? Unless it's a thermal-imaging type (costing thousands of dollars, typically), it's not going to see through fog any better than any other camera (and realistically, thermal cameras don't do a whole lot better in fog either).

There are signs on the Coq., too, specifically warning not to use cruise control in wet or slippery conditions. Uphill is actually worse, because the cruise will just kick down the gear and punch the gas when you drop below speed, with no way of telling if the road is slippery, or if you're in a curve, or any other conditions an experienced driver will recognize as not being a good time to accelerate.
