Exit, Warning, idea, Ford, users of the two wheels ringrazano
the have You ever heard of car dooring? Translated it means one of the most ordinary situations, and asked the captain to the street, that is the classic door that opens while you are passing a scooter or a bike. It seems that every year cause thousands of accidents: only in Germany, in 2018, has caused more than 3,500. And is expected to among other things, that this problem is likely to worsen as more and more people choose to move in the city riding, and riding e-scooters.

The solution seems to have found the Ford, with a technology christened Exit Warning that provides visual and audible warnings to the road users and the occupants of the vehicle when it detects that the door opening may be the cause of a possible collision. It can also prevent the opening of the door in the event that a rider enters in its path.

How it works? Ford cars already have sensors and technologies that detect and brake automatically in the case of cyclists present on the road or who might cross the path of the vehicle, approaching the side of the blind corner. Using these sensors, the Exit Warning analyzes and understands the movements of the users of the road approaching, that they are riding a bike or driving a e-scooter electric, both on the driver's side, both on the passenger side of the vehicle.

If the system detects that the opening of the door of the vehicle can cause a collision, an alarm will sound to warn the driver or the passenger of the impending danger. The red LED is lit, placed on the rear view mirror outer, begin to flash, as a visual warning for cyclists, while those on the inside of the door – that become visible only when it is opened – provide an additional warning to other road users.

in Addition, engineers are testing a new mechanism for the door of the car that prevents temporarily the complete opening, until the system Exit Warning will not cause the user to pass in safety. The occupant of the vehicle, in case of an emergency, you will be able to manually exclude this function.

After tests conducted with motorists and cyclists employees to Ford, the engineers will involve in the coming months, even the customers. Part of the test will be to ensure that the technology can adapt to road users in the various markets, taking into account of the vehicles with the right guide, and left, as well as the different layout of streets and lanes.
