The Lincoln Lane Keeping System

The engineers at Lincoln have developed some very advanced automotive technology with one goal in mind: your safety. In this article we will look at the Lincoln Lane Keeping System which is a combination of three interacting technologies: the Driver Alert System, Lane Keeping Alert and Lane Keeping Aid. Let’s take a look at all three and see how they work together.

Driver Alert System

This system is basically a “drowsiness detector” and senses if a driver drifts out of their lane when driving. The way it works is that a small forward-facing camera mounted behind the rearview mirror senses the position of lane marking on the road and looks for slow drift. If the system detects drift that fits the pattern of driver drowsiness, a small red coffee cup icon illuminates on the dash and a first-level chime will sound. This is a gentle indicator to alert the driver that it might be a good idea to pull over and take a break from driving. If the driver continues to drive and still seems fatigued, then another warming chime is issued. A life saver? According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, more than 40 percent of Americans say they have fallen asleep or nodded off while driving at some point.

Lane Keeping Alert

The Lane Keeping Alert is designed to help drivers avoid unintentional lane changes. When the system detects the vehicle drifting close to lane markings, it will alert the driver through a vibration in the steering wheel to naturally grab the driver’s attention. This vibration can be compared to the feeling that one feels when an automobile runs over highway “rumble strips”. This allows the driver time to react and steer the vehicle back into its lane. To calculate the lane position, the Lane Keeping Alert uses data from the front camera on the windshield in addition. A display in the dashboard instrument cluster lets the driver know when the system is operational as not all roads are well-marked and they system essentially pauses detection when this occurs.

Lane Keeping Aid

The Lincoln Lane Keeping Aid technology takes this previous two technologies even further by providing steering assist to alert the driver of the need to steer back toward the center of the lane. Essentially the car gives the driver an assist to steer back to where it should be. The system calculates the amount of steering required based on factors such as the distance to the lane markings, yaw angle and curve radius determined from the front camera and other sensors in the vehicle.

Settings

The sensitivity of the three system settings can be adjusted between normal and increased, which moves the warning zones in closer to the center of the lane. The intensity of the steering wheel vibrations can be adjusted as well between low, medium and high. The last-known setting for each selection is stored so it does not have to be set each time the system is activated.

Driverless Vehicles and Urban Travel

That’s right you read it correctly. Within 10 to 20 years we will all see the advent of autonomous vehicles and urban travel while the driver does a number of things other than operate that car. It may not be quite as slick as the fictional film versions of the 50’s depicting miles and miles of bubble topped cars transporting thousands of smiling families but they will exist. The assisted parking cars are available now for purchase. With cameras and 4 directional wheels they easily parallel park themselves with just a little assistance from the driver. Computers and GPS systems will pop our current thoughts of motoring off the charts soon.

City congestion present problems because there is just too much interference for everything to work properly. Traveling to the city for work and play is where you’ll find autonomous vehicles and urban travel commanding less of your attention. You’ll be able to set your coordinates, choose the route you wish to take perhaps for scenic pleasure, set back and relax. Sensors will know the speed limits, surrounding vehicles and path obstructions. Of course unlike those fun 50’s families playing board games in swivel seats you’ll still be belted in to safely arrive. Your car may still have to slam on the brakes for the animal or vehicle that strays into your lane. Unlike a human however, it is hoped the cameras and computers will be able to make faster snap decisions as to which ditch to gently fly into with as little damage as possible.

Henry Ford wanted to be able to help people down the road as a group in a covered motored coach. While he accomplished that the next few generations brought us windows, heaters and air conditioning, cushioning suspension systems and optional diesel motors. It is hoped the electric vehicle will one day go beyond 30 to 50 miles on a charge relinquishing our need of petrol. While the combination gas and electric hybrid vehicles spew far less emissions into the air we need to breathe, their foot print does still exist. It is hoped Quick Charge stations will start to appear where you can also “exchange” low cost electric vehicles people will share with many of a group. The car you climb into will be fully charged for the next 50 miles and cleaned by an attendant just for you.

The Scoop on Autonomous Vehicles (Infographic)

Google has been making the rounds in the news because of their recently announced work on autonomous (driverless) vehicles. While questions remain as to why Google would want to get into the automotive space, driverless cars are fascinating. The experts from the CarInsurance Blog dug up the scoop on autonomous vehicles for us.

2011 Ford Escape For The Blind

Believe it or not, Ford has developed technology that would potentially allow a blind person to drive a vehicle.  However, it’s not just any vehicle, on display at the National Convention For The Blind annual convention is a 2011 Escape, which is outfitted with technology that will allow blind people to drive.  It’s truly a leap of faith in technology to allow an SUV on the highway with a blind person, but Ford says we are not far from that reality.

If the technology is a success and a price point can be met, blind people will have their first opportunity to drive legally.  The SUV uses technology that sense which way a persons should steer and transforms those signals into vibrations in specially developed gloves that the driver would wear.  Personally, this makes absolutely zero sense to me, but it is a real technology being used today.

It’s called nonvisual interface technology, which utilizes a drivers other senses to translate what’s going on around them.  For example, vibrations in special gloves or even compressed air being blown in the face or body of the driver to indicate when traffic is near.
