A number of car manufacturers are working ion making their cars safer, and reducing accidents, and now Ford has announced that their future cars will come with a new pre-collission technology.
Ford calls the new technology Pre-Collission Assist and it designed to spot pedestrians and the car will actually brake for your if it thinks you could be involved in an accident.
Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses radar and camera technology to scan the roadway ahead and, if a collision risk with a vehicle or pedestrian is detected, provides a warning to the driver. If the driver does not respond in time, the system can automatically apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of or even eliminate some frontal collisions. Pre-Collision Assist may help drivers avoid rear end collisions with other vehicles at all speeds, while Pedestrian Detection can help the driver avoid pedestrians at lower speeds – both may reduce the severity of forward collisions or even prevent certain forward collisions.
“This technology adds to the already impressive list of driver-assist technologies Ford customers benefit from today,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development.
The new Ford Pre-Collision Assist technology will be launching in the 2015 Ford Mondeo which is launching in Europe this year, you can find out more details at the link below.
