Ford Technology from Gates Ford in Essex & Hertfordshire

Ford has designed new and exciting technology to enhance its models for safety and driver convenience purposes. One of the latest features is the Ford Speed Limiter – a device that accurately measures speed to help the driver maintain control and prevent common issues of speeding on the road.

The Ford Speed Limiter can be customised to suit the requirements of each driver. With speed settings ranging from 12mph to 70mph, the driver can set their own maximum speed. By utilising this technology, the driver is prevented from accelerating above a certain speed.

The Ford Speed Limiter is available in models such as the new Ford Focus RS and can be added onto other models as an optional extra if not already a feature. This technology works through the use of small sensors which are fixed on the front wheels of the car, and this software carefully and consistently monitors the vehicle’s speed. Once the maximum speed setting has been detected by these sensors, the amount of fuel being delivered to the engine is reduced, thus the car is slowed and kept under the maximum limit. Conveniently, the driver can adjust the settings so that the maximum speed can be increased or decreased when the car is in motion using a simple switch system.

With this new technology, you can maintain a steady speed when driving in both urban and rural settings. Not only does this make driving easier and safer, but the fuel-reducing sensors could also help you drive more efficiently, particularly on longer journeys.
