As one of the nation’s most beloved car brands, Ford has an impressive range of new technologies to enhance the driving experience and increase car safety. Ford’s new Traffic Sign Recognition System Technology is another new feature available on many of the new models as standard, or can be installed as an extra piece. Ford’s Traffic Sign Recognition System Technology is designed to help drivers stay aware and stay safe at all times on the road.
Sometimes when driving, it is easy to miss road signs if you are concentrating on your sense of direction, or any potential hazards in the road. The system is designed to reduce risk for drivers by recognising road signs as they appear up ahead.
Using a forward-facing digital camera that is connected to recognition software, the various road signs are picked up by the camera and displayed on the car’s information panel. This technology is not there to replace a driver’s Highway Code or understanding, but rather to take away the stress of having to focus on signs at all times.
With Ford’s Traffic Sign Recognition System Technology, you can enjoy a safer, more relaxing drive. Maintain the correct speed when changing speed limit zones, and stay prepared for what is up ahead.
The technology is available in cars such as the new Ford Focus, which has a range of other state-of-the-art technology features to enhance your safety as a driver.
