Smart Tech Helps Drivers Remain Alert at the Wheel

February 26, 2014

Reports in the U.K. media reveal that one in 20 drivers unknowingly suffer from a sleeping disorder called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome that puts them at risk of nodding off at the wheel.

Ford’s Driver Alert technology is designed to detect tired driver behaviour, such as weaving and other erratic movements, using advanced camera technology and on-board sensors. It will then flash a warning sign on the dashboard and sound a chime, too. The system is available across a wide range of Ford cars and commercial vehicles.
