Ford Active Park Assist

Ford Active Park Assist
Car  |  Other
Ford has announced a New Active Park Assist helps drivers parallel park with the touch of a button and without ever touching the steering wheel. In Ford's version, you just pull alongside a space and push a button. The sensors of the car will measure and calculate a a feasible parallel parking space, and prompts the driver to give the OK. After pushes the OK, the EPAS (Electronic Power Assisted Steering) will automatically steer the car into the parking space hands-free. Click 2 see big pic!!
Here's how Active Park Assist works:
• The driver activates the system by pressing an instrument panel button, which activates the ultrasonic sensors to measure and identify a feasible parallel parking space.
• The system then prompts the driver to accept the system assistance to park.
• The steering system then takes over and steers the car into the parking space hands-free. The driver still shifts the transmission and operates the gas and brake pedals.
• A visual and/or audible driver interface advises the driver about the proximity of other cars, objects and people and provides instructions.
• While the steering is all done automatically, the driver remains responsible for safe parking and can interrupt the system by grasping the steering wheel.

Available as an option on both the 2010 Lincoln MKS and the as-yet-unrevealed 2010 Lincoln MKT seven-seat crossover, Active Park Assist accompanies Ford's new Electric Power Assisted Steering.

An airplane to park on the stern of your superyacht! Danish Yacht is a modern superyacht shipyard located in Skagen in Denmark. Danish Yacht has announced its partnership with Lisa Airplanes to offer "a unique resource to the global superyacht community". The Akoya aircraft is a two-seat aircraft with folding wings on the back of Danish Yacht. The aircraft is designed to take off from land, snow or water. The aircraft features includes retractable wheels, retractable skis to enable you the freedom of landing in your properties. Now Lisa airplanes have started taking orders for it with an initial deposit of 10,000 euros.
¡°The AKOYA also uses another patented innovation from LISA Airplanes. The combination of two hydrofoils in the shape of an inverted V and retractable landing-gear make for performance over and above classic water ¡¯planes. The hydrofoils, combined with the high lift of the Ri&Flex Wing, lift the fuselage out of the water at very low speed and dispense with the need for a step or fairing. This allows the ¡¯plane to accelerate and take-off over short distances. This system of hydrofoils enables the fuselage to be very aerodynamic making the AKOYA the first ¡¯plane to be both agile in water and fast in the air.¡±Check out see the Lisa Airplane video.

The world's largest robotic vehicle! When I hear "world's largest", I think maybe you will need to know it! Computer scientists from Carnegie Mellon University have teamed up with engineers from Caterpillar, adapting software CMU used in the DARPA Urban Challenge, to automate the 700-ton trucks, which are made to haul loads up to 240 tons from mines.
That's nearly two million pounds of metal, fuel and stone powered by a 3,550-horsepower, 24-valve engine moving at up to 42 miles per hour, with software and a robot at the wheel. The Caterpillar trucks will be equipped with numerous high-tech gadgets and GPS receivers to keep them on the road. Laser range finders would sweep the road in front of the trucks to identify large objects. Video equipment would then determine if the object is a hazard, such as a rock, or not. All of the information would then be run through a computer program that would tell the robotic driver to avoid the obstacle or not and by how much...[ link ]
