Ford and many other car manufacturers on the road are embracing more complex and intuitive collision detection systems as autonomous driving technology improves. The latest idea from the American manufacturer is a radar and camera system which detects if a potential collision is becoming unavoidable and the object in front of the car comes to a stop, the system will assist with appropriate evasive action, and bring the car safely out of harm’s way and to a complete stop. Ford says that the system can be overridden by the driver at any time, but will majorly improve driver response time to a potentially deadly situation.
