2020 Ford Explorer Co-Pilot360  

Hands-free driving is the latest and most exciting technology to reach the automotive market. This technology doesn't require active driver participation when operating a vehicle: whether it's steering or applying the brakes when needed. Ford vehicles with the Co-Pilot360 assistive technology system, now have hands-free driving capabilities with its Active Drive Assist.

How Does It Work?

Hands-free driving technology uses sensors that detect stimuli in its surrounding environment, such as other vehicles, poles, or pedestrians. Active Drive Assist allows the drivers on certain stretches of divided, pre-mapped highways to drive without holding the steering wheel. Even in hands-free driving mode, the driver is monitored using an infrared driver-facing camera. If the system determines that the driver's head position or eye gaze indicates they are not paying attention to the road, they are notified by dashboard visual prompts.

Active Drive Assist joins the Co-Pilot360 suite featuring advanced driver assistance technology such as Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, Reverse Brake Assist, Evasive Steering Assist, which avoids a collision with a vehicle stopped in the road or slows down unexpectedly.

Other features include Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Active Park Assist, Rearview Camera, automatic high-beam headlamps, Blind Spot Information System with Trailers, Pro Trailer Backup Assist, and Hill Descent Control.
