Ford Gives Demo Of Active Park Assist Feature In Lincoln MKS

Posted Aug 10, 2009

Ford Motor Company is unveiled one of the most high tech features I’ve seen in a car. Ali Jammoul, Chief Engineer of Chassis at Ford is giving a video demo of the Active Park Assist feature in the Lincoln MKS.

When finding a parking spot, the Active Park System takes over the wheel. Instructions about when to reverse and accelerate the car appear on the dashboard.

The Active Park System works by pressing a button, turning on the blinker, driving past the parking space, and then the system takes over. The Active Park System in the Ford cars use ultrasound sensors whereas other cars that have a similar feature uses cameras.
