Ford is developing new technology to predict car accidents before they happen

Ford is leading a research project in the United Kingdom that could see road travel in urban centres become easier and safer thanks to the ability to "foresee traffic incidents" and prevent them from happening. Ford Mobility has partnered with a group of councils, transport bodies and universities to create a predictive road safety tool that utilises data from connected vehicles, local authorities and roadside sensors to identify high-risk hotspots.
