“We are investing in our ADAS team to constantly improve BlueCruise and ActiveGlide for our customers. The latest improvements allow customers to command lane changes using just a turn signal, and make hands-free driving feel more human-like by smoothly slowing down for turns, and giving more room to large vehicles in neighboring lanes. These improvements are just the beginning of a constant journey toward improving safety and, in the future, giving customers valuable time back.” 

– Chief EV & Digital Systems Officer, Ford Model E, Doug Field  

America’s favorite automakers remain resilient, and the only time the carmaker finds harmony is in success. Yet, even though the Blue Oval won’t halt and appreciate their handy work, the automaker has revealed a lot of triumphs worth honoring. For instance, Ford recently added a hands-free lane change to its auxiliary. 

The advanced hands-free driving system will launch as BlueCruise 1.2. In addition, the new BlueCruise will feature hands-free lane changing and system updates to provide a more ‘human-like’ driving experience. Moreover, the evolved system will arrive on Blue Oval vehicles by the Fall of 2022. Furthermore, the Ford Mustang Mach-E will be the first to attain the new BlueCruise 1.2 system. 

Here are three new features to anticipate from Ford’s BlueCruise.

Predictive Speed Assist: Automatically modifies the vehicle’s speed for a smooth transition. Predictive Speed Assist is essential when Ford lovers approach a sharp-edged turn; the system then notifies the driver before a speed change transpires. Furthermore, the predictive speed assist guarantees that Ford enthusiasts will comprehend why the car is slowing down. 

Lane Change Assist: Helps Ford lovers move through interstate traffic more confidently while engaging BlueCruise. In addition, the Lane Change Assist will accomplish a hand-free lane change with an easy tap of the turn signal. Moreover, Lane Change Assist will suggest if a lane change is practical while cruising through slow-moving traffic. 

In-Lane Repositioning: Provides a more natural-feeling hands-free driving experience that maintains the vehicle in its lane while subtly shifting the American automaker’s vehicle away from adjoining lanes. Moreover, the repositioning features are valuable next to larger-sized cars or semi-trucks. 

The ingenious engineers of Ford work busily to improve ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems for a balanced driving experience. In addition to revamping handling and performance, Ford engineers refined its maps for over-the-air updates. Moreover, Ford’s BlueCruise can pinpoint prequalified routes that currently span over 130,000 miles.
