The company has given a statement on Friday that they are going to release Ford’s new hands-free self-driving package has a shiny new name. To compete with the Blue Cruise, GM’s Super Cruise and Tesla’s automatic pilot / fully self-driving cabin, the 2021 Mustang will be available in the Mac-E electric crossover and F-150.
The Blue Cruise Ford will be offered as an upgrade to the Co-Pilot 360 system along with the 2021 Mac-E and F-150. It offers real, hands-free operation on designated highway “Blue Zones”, of which 100,000 miles are so far in North America, and Ford has confirmed its new layout, all of which are “mother of all roads” trips. ”
“Here are the highway questions and driving conditions that you can’t copy in the lab,” said Hove Tai-Tong, Ford’s chief production site and operations officer. “Sending these vehicles for a real-world driving experience is one of the many ways we’ve ensured that Blue Cruise technology gives drivers across the continent confidence and comfort.”
The Blue Cruise is a SAE Level 2 driver-assistance system, similar to the above autopilot and Super Cruise, Ford says. Unlike Tesla’s initiative, Blue Cruise and Super Cruise can operate hands-free in designated blue zones. Because the system relies on sensors and cameras instead of wheel feedback to determine the driver’s attention, it only starts manual control if the driver feels distracted or the car is left in the blue zone. Ford also points out that it does not use the camera to record any visual data and protects the owner’s privacy.
