Lots of people break the speed limit, many do it without realizing, although the consequences can either be an accident or a speeding fine and it looks like Ford are trying to do something about it.
Ford has announced that they are launching an Intelligent Speed Limiter in their future vehicles, that is designed to help you drive within the speed limit.
The Intelligent Speed Limiter is capable of reading road signs and then adjusting your speed to make sure you are driving within the speed limit for the area you are in.
“Drivers are not always conscious of speeding and sometimes only becoming aware they were going too fast when they receive a fine in the mail or are pulled over by law enforcement,” said Stefan Kappes, active safety supervisor, Ford of Europe. “Intelligent Speed Limiter can remove one of the stresses of driving, helping ensure customers remain within the legal speed limit.”
The system will come with an override, which will allow you to either press a button to override the system or with a hard press of the accelerator pedal, have a look at the video below.
The Intelligent Speed Limiter will be available in the new S-Max and the company will also be offering a new Pedestrian Detection System in the car as well, you can find out more details at the link below.Filed Under: Auto News, Technology News, Top News
