Ford is Teaming Up With Russian Space Robots to Help Make Your Car Safer
The communication system that exists between the International Space Station and Earth is one of the most advanced and effective ever created. To better understand how this communication flow works, Ford will be teaming up with Russian researchers to observe and learn how they communicate with their robots in space. The information gathered will be used to create the most effective and useful vehicle-to-vehicle communication possible.
The vehicle-to-vehicle communication will work on something called a 'mesh network', meaning that communication is wireless and sort of 'blanketed' across cars. Ford is concerned about what would happen if an accident were to occur and a vehicle's communication system were damaged or taken offline. To better understand this issue, Ford will be examining specifically how Russian researchers keep their communication systems constantly functioning - even in the wake of a system outage. This will allow Ford to create an emergency messaging protocol that will keep drivers informed about a damaged vehicle, even if the vehicle is 'offline'.
Ford is teaming up with Russian space robots to help make your car safer - sort of. They may not be teaming up with space robots exactly, but they are working to make your vehicle as safe as possible - something that Ford is known for. With so many vehicles on the market that have been given top safety ratings, such as the 2013 Ford Focus, Ford is making strides in safety features for your vehicle.
