lighting technologies in vehicles are directly related to the security. The worst scenario that we can find in this sense is driving at night on a road with little or no lighting where the risk of dazzling other users, or that we do to us, is quite high.
in this situation, the signing of the oval has launched a new technology that eliminates the possibility of dazzling other drivers at the same time increasing our visibility on the road. The high beam lights that do not dazzle Ford prevent the driver having to change from long to short and vice versa each time there is a risk for glare.
This system makes a combined use of the camera installed in the windshield for the recognition of signals, which detects a distance of 800 meters vehicles circulating in both directions and cyclists, and headlights especially developed that eliminates any light that may blind them temporarily with the identification of these potential risks.
The high beam lights that do not dazzle Ford’s work with the System of beams Automatic and headlights dynamic LED Ford Front Lighting System Adaptive, that allows to configure dynamically the angle and the intensity of the beams in seven positions according to multiple parameters.
According to the manufacturer, a study shows that the systems of lights long auto activated up to 10 times more manually, a circumstance that has a positive impact on our visibility and safety. With respect to this situation, Ford has found with drivers that directly not using the lights long fear of cause a glare.
This technology you’ll find already available in the new Ford S-MAX and Ford Galaxy, will also be available in the Ford Edge and possibly look at as you expand the rest of the range.
The signing of the oval in addition, it has other technologies, semi-autonomous, like reading traffic signs and adjusting the speed, to detect vehicles and pedestrians crossing the road or are coming to it and can even brake the vehicle automatically in case of risk for collision.
