Ford Provides Drivers a “Sixth Sense”

Ford_sixth_sense_system

Ford is using radar and other sensing technologies in conjunction with biometric sensors and an integrated driver workload model to manage infotainment and communication features in the car for the purpose of reducing driver distraction. Ford feels that combining information on what’s happening both inside and outside the vehicle, with an assessment of the driver’s physical state, will not only allow for filtering out distractions, but also permit earlier warnings for advanced safety systems such as forward collision alerts and pedestrian-detection systems.
