The 'lane-keeping' bed uses pressure sensors to identify when someone has strayed from their side of the bed, moving them back where they should be.
Available in most Ford vehicles, Lane-Keeping Aid monitors the road markings ahead and actively supports the driver to safely guide the vehicle back into the correct lane by 'nudging' the steering wheel in the correct direction. This complements other camera‑based systems that help drivers avoid inadvertently straying out of their lane.
This technology inspired the 'Lane-Keeping Bed' that uses pressure sensors to identify when someone has strayed from their side of the bed and gently returns them to where they should be with the help of an integrated conveyor belt.
Just a prototype, the Lane-Keeping Bed is part of a series of Ford Interventions, applying automotive expertise to tackle everyday - or in this case, every night - problems.
