Ford is always working hard on new systems to help make their cars safer. The research team at Ford is currently working on a new system to help with crash avoidance that uses GPS and wireless technology.

The system use active safety measures and radio sensors that give a 360-degree view around a car. The sensors would work in conjunction with other vehicles using the same system to sense where the other vehicles are.

If the sensors determine that a side impact is imminent, the brakes are automatically applied to help avoid the accident. The system is called the Ford Automatic Braking Intersection Collision Avoidance System or ABICAS. The research is part of the ford Smart Intersection project.
