If something is making us clear the automobile industry in recent times is that in the future driving will be completely autonomous. It is a long-term future, but systems helps driving it enjoyed by most current cars are the intermediate step between the driving of makes a decade and that future long term. Manufacturers continue to invest and develop new technologies.
Today Ford shows us his next step in terms of driving assistance. The American brand of the blue oval has released systems of aid to the conduct that is currently developing and which will arrive in their products in the short term. All them will improve the security and comfort of its customers, making more easy the use of them cars.
Alert traffic crossed with automatic braking
Some cars on the market, today, already offer a warning to the cross traffic. This system helps the departure March back from a parking lot in battery. A wide angle camera on the rear of the vehicle detects if approaching any vehicle or person that would be impossible to see the driver’s rear-view mirrors. Where there is this situation, in addition to alerting us sound and visually, if we do not react to their ads, it would be able to apply an automatic brake force to stop the vehicle; avoiding a possible blow or hit.
Assistance of evasive address
A camera and a radar, this time located in the front of the vehicle, may detect vehicles that circulate too slow or that is are unemployed in our Lane, in front of us. Not slow and when applying an important force of braking was impossible to avoid the accident, it would provide assistance to the management to make a sudden evasive maneuver, which would avoid the shock by reach.
Alert circulating in forbidden direction
Also with a camera, and with data from the browser, this system can know if we are circulating in forbidden direction. If so, it would inform the driver visually and acoustically; avoiding a clear situation of danger.
In addition to these three important technologies described, Ford is developing other driving AIDS to facilitate the parking without the driver even it has to handle the pedals or transmission; a new detector of pedestrians, bicyclists and animals via infrared; a greater width in front at intersections and roundabouts lighting; and a system that acts on the address to help the vehicle to circulate through the center of the rail.
