Ford Takes One Step Closer to Auto-Driving Car
Ford debuts Active Park Assist and Active Brake Assist, two technologies that will automatically park your car, and automatically keep you from hitting another car as well.
Hands on with Ford's new technologies that help you park, and the will also apply the brakes when a collision is imminent.
Active park assist helps drivers parallel park with the touch of a button and without ever touching the steering wheel
Active park assist uses ultrasonic-based sensing system and electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) to steer the vehicle into a parking spot - EPAS also improves fuel economy up to 5 percent, while reducing CO2 emissions and enhancing performance, compared with traditional steering
Launched in mid-2009, the innovative technology is available very affordably on the Ford Focus, Explorer, Escape, Flex, Lincoln MKS and Lincoln MKT
