Ford’s new car will force you to obey the speed limit which could play a significant role in many road accidents.
Ford of Europe has announced that they are launching “Intelligent Speed Limiter”, a technology that could help prevent drivers from unintentionally exceeding speed limits.
The system monitors road signs with a camera mounted on the windscreen, and slows the vehicle as required. As the speed limit rises, the system allows the driver to accelerate up to the set speed – providing it does not exceed the new limit.
Further new technologies available for the new S-MAX include the Pedestrian Detection system that will reduce the severity of some collisions involving vehicles and pedestrians, or help drivers avoid some impacts altogether.
The versatile people-mover also is equipped to help out at junctions where it is difficult to see. At low speeds a camera fitted in the grille monitors the view from the front of the car, which is then displayed inside the car.
