The engineers of the brand talked about Autonomous driving technology is ADA (Active Drive Assist). Model companies need to get a new product by 2021.
A couple of hours ago, the press service of the company Ford has published a document, according to which, their new system of Autonomous control of vehicle Active Drive Assist (ADA) will be available by the end of 2021 on-Board electric crossover Mustang Mach-E and some other models of the brand. Active Drive Assist – jewel family of technologies Co-Pilot 360, part of the automaker – is part of the extensive list of systems designed to ensure the care and safety of drivers.
What you need to do to order the crossover with a new system Active Drive Assist? First, customers will need to choose a special “package” Active 2.0, which meets all requirements of ADA equipment and will be available at the start of sales of the crossover. In the second half of 2021 Ford will begin selling the software to work ADA, which users can install by visiting your local Ford dealer or wirelessly.
In essence, this means that customers of the American brand who have decided to buy a crossover Mustang Mach-E with an Autonomous control system Active Drive Assist will have to make two separate purchases. It is worth noting that in a recent conference call Director of global programs Ford Darren Palmer said that the price of the whole system “will be very competitive.”
“We want as many people as possible could use the ADA system”, – said Mr. Palmer.
After complete installation, ADA will function in the same way as intelligent cruise control, Super Cruise from General Motors. For the functioning of the autopilot, the vehicle will use a combination of external sensors and pre-mapped sections of road. At the moment Ford introduced a database of more than 100,000 miles of roads in all 50 States and even Canada.
Recall that recently Ford has postponed the launch of electrocreaser Ford Mustang Mach-E for 2021, but has announced that it is charging 30% faster than planned.
