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.
