Ford gives shopping trolleys AEB

Ford has been rolling out autonomous emergency braking across a wider range of its cars lately. The Ranger dual-cab ute now has it standard across the range, as does the Transit. Turns out, it's not just commercial vehicles getting the potentially life-saving tech. It's also shopping trolleys. Sort of... This is, obviously, a stunt from Ford of Europe designed to promote autonomous emergency braking in its cars. There's a sensor embedded in its base, designed to detect obstacles ahead.
