INNOVATIVE

THE FUTURE IS NOW

Ford has been declared ‘Most innovative volume brand 2015’ at the Automotive Innovations Awards. Technology required for a fully self-driving car is available right now. Read all about some interesting features that are already part of your new car.

Adaptive cruise control

It is likely that your new car is equipped with the optional adaptive cruise control. When the system’s radar sees that the distance and speed of the vehicles ahead are decreasing, it adjusts the speed of the car to maintain a safe margin.

Automatic steering

A great example of autonomous driving– exists, too. Ford was one of the first manufacturers to equip its cars with active park assist systems.

Traffic sign recognition

Another intelligent system that helps the driver is traffic sign recognition. Speed signs can be identified automatically and the vehicle will automatically adjust your speed to ensure you stay within the legal limit.

Lane-keeping system

It is not unlikely that your car is fitted with lane-keeping system with lane-keeping aid, which helps prevent you drifting outside your intended driving lane.

Blind spot information system

When in the future your car wants to drive all by itself, it will depend on radars to act as its own ‘eyes on the road’. Some current Ford models – such as the Focus, Mondeo and upcoming Edge – are already equipped with BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) a radar that triggers a warning when another motorist is in your blindspot.

Cross-traffic alert

The additional cross-traffic alert uses radar to help alert drivers to oncoming traffic when backing out of a parking space.

Active city stop

Designed to sense potential low speed collisions and apply the brakes if you don’t react in time.
