Cold Atoms bouncing on modulated atomic mirror exhibits acceleration and dynamical localization subject to modulated strength. We explain characteristics of acceleration and define control
parameters in terms of effective Planck's constant. We show that the effective Planck's constant plays a vital role in limiting
classical-like overall linear growth of the variance of accelerated atoms with time. For large values
of the effective Planck's constant the atomic quantum acceleration is seized as localization window
overlaps the accelerated window.
