Ford Motor has announced a most advanced Driver assist system called Ford Co-Pilot 360. This new technology will bring additional security for driver in type of tricky road.
In detail this syatem provides rear view camera system, blind spot information system, lane keeping system and automatic emergency braking sytem. This all new driver assist feature will available on all future passenger cars, SUVs and Truck in North America,tarting on the new 2019 Ford Edge and Edge ST this fall.
“Though our vehicles today are safer than ever, drivers tell us they are still stressed about getting in a potential accident,” said Jim Farley, Ford president, Global Markets. “That’s one reason why we’re making these must-have technologies accessible to millions of customers each year.”
Starting from rear view camera system, It is the feature which allow driver to see at back side while reversing the car. This will help mostly while parking the car in congested areas. Second there is a emergency automatic braking system with pedestrian detection, that can help drivers avoid collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians who might accidentally cross in front of the vehicle’s path. If a potential collision is detected, a warning flashes and an alert sounds, and if the driver’s response is not sufficient, the system can automatically apply the brakes to help minimize a frontal collision.
“Our commercial customers trust our trucks to get the job done,” Farley said. “And soon, we’ll be giving them another reason to trust us even more.”
Blind spot information system, or BLIS, uses radar to identify a vehicle entering the blind spot and alerts the driver with an indicator light in the side-view mirror. Cross-traffic alert can warn drivers of traffic behind when slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway.
Lane keeping system will automatically contact driver via sterring wheel vibration that that they need to correct course when the system detects the vehicle drifting close to lane markings. It also includes a driver alert system, continuously monitors driving pattern using a forward-looking camera and provides visual and audio warnings when the system estimates the driver’s vigilance level to be less than that of an attentive driver.
“Many people question the idea of autonomous vehicles,” Farley said. “But those who use advanced driver-assist technologies today say they are more open to cars doing all of the driving in the future.”
