The New Ford Driver Alert System

Each day more and more information is released by the Ford Motor company detailing just what we can expect in the near future from their in car systems. The company is one of the leading motor manufacturers when it comes to in-car safety and entertainment technology.

Ford have just released information about one of their latest initiatives called the ‘Driver Alert System' that is due to be released in the Ford ‘Explorer' SUV vehicle next year, and which could well be implemented into Ford cars for sale across the world in the near future.

The system is designed to detect signs of drowsiness and weariness whilst driving and alert drivers to take a break. Using a camera located behind the rear view mirror that scans everything from pavement lines and road markings the system is designed to emit a chime that will alert the driver. The system will reset once the vehicle has reset; the system also includes a new lane keeping alert.
