Ford Motor Company's new 'Surveillance Mode' safety technology will alert police officers in the event someone approaches their vehicle from behind. Should someone approach the vehicle from behind, the system detect the person and automatically sound an alert, lock the doors, and roll up the windows. Officers can also see what is going on behind the vehicle with the projected backup camera image on the rearview mirror.
While backup cameras and sensors generally only work when the car is in reverse, Ford's new technology works even when the vehicle is parked, detecting activity behind the vehicle with the rear sensors. As you probably guessed the system works during both the day and night, however it can be turned off in high traffic areas where there are a lot of pedestrians.
“It’s like insurance. You hope you never need it. But if you do, it gives the officer a few extra seconds of warning,” says Marc Ellison, vice president of operations at InterMotive Inc., the company which helped Ford develop the system.
The new Ford Interceptor 'Surveillance Mode' For Police is currently only available on the automaker's Interceptor.
