Ford Motor Company continues to expand its involvement in the new wave of driverless vehicle technology with its early prototype of Traffic Jam Assist, which takes over a car’s steering, breaking, and acceleration in congested traffic.
The technology is being developed for the mid-term and builds on Ford’s already-available active park assist, adaptive cruise control, Lane-Keeping Aid and the PowerShift transmission to automatically keep pace with other vehicles in congested traffic.
The system follows the vehicle ahead with advanced radar and camera technology and is adapted to react to fellow drivers in cut-off scenarios.
Robotics is causing profound changes in the ways that the world has always worked, with many more changes still to come. Taking stock of those myriad changes, sorting through how each affects the new revolution and our future, and reporting on them to you our members is the job of Robotics Business Review.
"Business" is our middle name; so here at Robotics Business Review, we believe that business, just as it has so aptly demonstrated since 1962, will ultimately be the force that drives all emerging robotics' technology forward. Robotics business and the business of robotics are our prime focus. Learn more.
