38-Ford Announces Predictions for New Vehicle Technology

Ford Experts predict that sensor fusion, machine learning and “big data” will be among the next wave of technology in Ford vehicles—advancements that have significant implications for repairers.  New Ford models are becoming increasingly equipped with multiple sensors that heighten driver awareness, according to Ford.  For example, the 2013 Fusion has 145 actuators, 4,716 signals, and 74 sensors that monitor radar, sonar, cameras, accelerometers, temperature and rain. The sensors generate over 25 gigabytes of memory per hour that is processed by more than 70 computers.  Paul Mascarenas, Ford’s Chief Technology Officer, said in a prepared statement that the Fusion represents the future of Ford’s technological research and advancement.
