Pre-Collison Assist with Pedestrian Detection

Type of Technology: Forward collision warning system
Target Audience: Law enforcement officers.
Manufacturer and Country of Origin: Ford
Availability: To be a standard feature in 2020 Ford Police Interceptor Utility models
Means of Activation: The application is activated when sensors detect a possible collision with an oncoming vehicle or pedestrian.

When a potential collision is detected, an audible alert is given and there is a flashing alert on the instrument cluster. The brakes are then pre-charged and increase brake-assist sensitivity to improve brake responsiveness when the driver slows down or stops the vehicle. If the driver does not take corrective action and a collision is imminent, the brakes apply automatically.

Disengagement: The driver can temporarily disable the application for “unique law enforcement demands”.
