If you leave your car in a tight parking space, or your garage is really cluttered, Ford may have a solution for you.
This is a completely self-parking car.
It's actually a step towards the autonomous cars of the future.
Now with this car, you can get out before it goes into the parking space, hold down a switch on a key fob, and the car will put itself in the parking space.
You have to keep your finger down on the button.
It works as kinda a dead man's switch.
So, then if anything goes wrong, you leave that off, the car immediately stops.
Also, with its ultra sonic sensors, if it encounters an obstacle, it will also stop, like if a child runs in back of it.
The car uses 12 ultra sonic sensors, that's very similar to the technology that's currently in Ford's automatic parallel parking system.
Along with controlling the steering, it also controls the breaking and acceleration, and this is actually a gasoline engine car, so it actually can start the car up by itself.
The system uses an RF ultra wideband frequency to connect the key fob to the car.
The key fob merely sends a signal to the car to tell it where to park.
You don't actually control the car with the key fob.
Now this is merely concept but this feature could come out in the next few years.
