Ford is introducing new lane keeping technologies, including a system that can help detect drowsy driver, in order to help them stay alert.

This Driver Alert System is designed to help alert drowsy drivers by monitoring the vehicle’s movement compared to lane markings that are tracked by a camera mounted on the windshield. If this system detects an inconsistent driving pattern, a first-level chime will sound and a coffee cup warning will appear on the dashboard. If ignored, another warning and chime is issued. Drivers can monitor their condition on the dashboard at any time, even without receiving warnings. Once the yellow warning range is reached, it’s time to rest asap.

Sensitivity and other settings can be adjusted between normal and increased, and must be turned on by the driver. They are, by default, always on until turned off.
