The flagship feature of the new Ford Mondeo is called Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. This system can detect if there are people on the road with the possibility of crossing the logical path of our vehicle. In that case, if the driver does not respond to the vehicle’s warnings, he will be the one to activate the brakes automatically.
The pedestrian detection system uses a camera installed on the windshield and a radar mounted on the bumper. The combined information from both systems is compared with the database of possible forms of pedestrians available to the system in order that objects and other elements that may appear on the road are obviated.
First, the new Ford Mondeo will issue an audible and visual alert. If there is no response from the driver, the system will reduce the gap between brake pads and discs to reduce reaction time in the event that the driver is taken for granted. If despite all this, there were no reaction, the brakes would be activated autonomously to reduce speed.
The pedestrian collision avoidance system is capable of operating at speeds of up to 80 kilometers per hour.
