The all-new Ford Focus offers a
new camera technology that makes reversing a breeze. The wide-angled camera
sees around obstacles, shows hazards driver can’t see. The radar sensors detect
vehicles crossing behind and can apply brakes to avoid collisions
For several years now,
reversing cameras that show drivers what is immediately behind them have become
increasingly popular with new car customers. Now, the all-new Ford Focus is
taking the technology a step further – by showing drivers what is around the
corner behind them.
Located just above the vehicle
licence plate, the camera captures a 180-degree view that can be displayed on a
touchscreen inside the car – so passing pedestrians, cyclists and other
vehicles can be more easily seen.
Reversing manoeuvres are also
made easier by radar sensors that monitor the area behind the car and alert
drivers to vehicles and motorcycles crossing behind. If the driver does not
respond to warnings, the brakes are automatically applied.
“We know that for nearly all our customers,
reversing is a crucial part of their daily drive – and one that some of them
really don’t enjoy. This little camera is helping us to make a big step
forwards in making it easier to go backwards,” said Glen Goold, Ford’s chief
program engineer for Focus.
According to a recent survey,
of the top five trickiest driving manoeuvres, four involved reversing, and the
fifth was driving forwards into a parking bay. The all-new Focus introduces a
wider range of advanced features and technologies than any Ford vehicle before.
As well as Rear Wide View
Camera, the car also has Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert
that warns the driver of vehicles and motorcycles that may soon be crossing
behind. The car can automatically apply the brakes to avoid or mitigate the
effects of collisions if the driver does not respond to warnings.
