And I'm not alone: Studies show that one in four people in a relationship sleep better alone.

But if separate beds don't appeal - a phenomenon now so popular that there is a recognised trend for so-called "sleep divorces" - what next?

It's called the "Lane Keeping Bed" and it uses "Lane-Keeping Assist" technology in a bed to ensure the bed hog in your life "stays in their lane" at night.

The smart bed was inspired by Ford's Lane-Keeping Aid technology, which is used in cars to monitor marks on the road and nudge the steering wheel in the right direction to keep the vehicle within the correct lane. The mechanism, which intervenes whenever a couple are not lying neatly side by... These sensors work in a way similar to the radar and camera sensors on a Ford auto equipped with lane-keeping assist, keeping the vehicle centered between its lane's markings. "We thought that showing how similar thinking could be applied to a bed, would be a great way to highlight to drivers a technology that they might not previously have been aware of", said Anthony Ireson, director, Marketing Communications, Ford of Europe.

Vera Jourova, EU justice commissioner, who proposed the list, was quoted as saying she was confident states would not block it. The list now includes 23 jurisdictions, with Bosnia Herzegovina, Guyana, Laos, Uganda and Vanuatu removed.

The Lane-Keeping Bed is part of the Ford Interventions program, which is meant to solve everyday problems with solutions taken from automotive design.

The first concept developed under the Interventions initiative - a noise-cancelling dog kennel - was unveiled in last December just in time for New Year's celebratory fireworks.

Once internal microphones detect the sound of pyrotechnics, a built-in audio system kicks in, emitting opposing frequencies that cancel out-or at least significantly reduce-the offending noise.
