The 2012 Ford Focus is the first car ever to receive four Euro NCAP Advanced Safety Awards for its Driver Alert and Forward Alert technologies.
The new Driver Alert System in the 2012 Ford Focus is designed to detect tired driver behavior using advanced camera technology and on-board sensors. This Driver Alert feature displays a vigilance rating via the instrument cluster and will even send a warning if it detects that the driver is fatigued and needs to rest.
In addition to monitoring the alertness of the driver, the 2012 Focus also monitors the traffic on the road with the Forward Alert Accident Warning System. If stopped or slowing traffic is detected, the system will send a warning chime and signal, and will even trigger the brakes if no action is taken.
The Euro NCAP Advanced Awards were introduced in 2010 to recognize car manufacturers who make new safety technologies widely available. As a more affordable car brand, Ford is able to effectively introduce these high-tech features to a greater amount of people.
