Ford showcases all-new brake detection system

Auto Tech
-All right guys, Brian Tong here outside of the CES Convention Hall. We're here at the kinda gold parking lot. This is outside the North Hall and we're gonna show you here-- we're here at Ford's vehicle to vehicle detection system. They're gonna show a demo off and we're just gonna show you two things that makes this really cool. This is kind of the future coming into your cars. But the first that we wanna talk about is the reveal, right? You have these car situations for example where you have three cars driving down in the line. Now what happen is we have a lead car down in the back and you'll see it coming up. A lot of times, if you have three cars in a row and you're that far back car, you don't know that there's actually one more car in front of you. All of the sudden car number 2 peels out, reveals that car and then your car stops. Now what happens in this detection system is that there's array of LED lights that warn you. There's an audible sound and also when cars are near you, there's a vibration system in the seats to let you know whether the car is on your left side or your right side. So this is just-- one of those cool examples here that they're showcasing off the technology. Now Ford is working on this in partnership with eight other OEMs. So this is not just specific to Ford is their driver-assistant system. So what we're gonna do now is kinda show you. We're gonna jump in the car and maybe kind of explain this a little more when we get inside. But let's just kinda go this way guys. This is cool stuff. And before we hop in, I just wanna point out one thing about this technology. Up here, you see the shark fin here. Now this is the transmitter that transmits ten times per second. It includes Wi-Fi and GPS data and what this does is this system talks to other cars. Again, this is not manufacturer specific. It is still being-- it's still in the work. This is not the prototype though. This is getting pushed for and all it takes is for the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration to push this through as a standard. But this is, again, this is not anything beta or a hacked up probably. This is going and moving forward and this is really a feature of cars across multiple manufacturers. So what we're gonna do now is jump in this car and show you one other demo to show you how this all work. Okay, so give us some time we're gonna-- I'm gonna jump in the front. Charlie is here [unk] jump in the back so just bear with us for a second, we're gonna load up. Okay guys? Look, I'm right-- look, I can see you guys still. Okay. Now, I will do the talking here. Nick, our driver, he's going to be, you know, he's here. He needs to pay attention to the road obviously. So we're gonna check this out. This is-- I guess this is a demo where if you're driving out in intersection and you're gonna be at a stop light, you may not see incoming traffic so what we're gonna do is we're here inside the car. You might be able to use a light sign on our left side. What happen is we can't see anything on our right side because we're being pretty much covered by a Penske moving truck. So we're gonna go give it a second for this demo to go on and then you'll see how this all comes together. All right. Three means go. Okay, so here we go. Let's see what this looks like. I should buckle up too. Safety first guys. All right, there some speed. Okay. Now you guys just saw that, you heard the audible noise. I actually felt that rumble in my chair, that's indicating the driver to stop as well as the LED array lights up to let you know that you need to slow down. So again, this is Ford's demo of their vehicle-to-vehicle system, you know, detection system, warning system for drivers. And again, just one of the cool demos you guys can check out here at CES. These are going to be coming down the road. There's no set date right now. Again, this has to be approved to push through but this is a standard that's coming to car soon and we will check you guys out more with CES 2014 after the break. Plus, 404 at the top of the hour, you wanna stick around for them. All right? We'll see you guys soon.
