Get a firsthand look at Ford Motor Company’s new generation high-tech safety innovations at the “Future of Safety,” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, June 3, 2010 at the Professional Automotive Training Center (PATC) at Shoreline Community College.
Ford Motor Company (FMC), in collaboration with PATC, will provide demonstrations of the world’s first production-ready rear inflatable seat belts, which will debut on the redesigned Ford Explorer that will go into production later this year.
Participants will have the opportunity to test drive and experience firsthand how Ford is using smart sensors, including radar, camera and wireless technologies, to develop new crash avoidance and driver assist systems that detect and help drivers recognize and respond to collision risks more quickly.
The event will offer a demonstration of the world’s first production-ready rear inflatable seat belts on the next generation Ford Explorer and a self-parking car. Featured safety technologies will include MyKey™; SYNC®: Traffic, Directions & Information; BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System); Active Park Assist; Integrated Blind Spot Mirrors; and Cross Traffic Alert.
The event also offers a sneak peek at the next-generation, yet-to-be-revealed Ford Explorer, which goes into production later in 2010, and includes the world’s first inflatable seat belts for rear passengers and a next-generation radar-enabled collision warning system.
