It’s a crash of metal and glass - with a side-view mirror catching suddenly against a door, leaving a long line across the aluminum. You slam on the brake but it’s far too late. The damage has been done. A miscalculation has left you (and the poor soul parked next to you) in need of costly repairs. You let your forehead fall to the steering wheel and sigh.
Ford is all too familiar with this scenario - which is why it’s paired the 2017 F-150 Raptor with advanced driver-assistance technology, helping to eliminate those unexpected collisions. The Keep Out Zone system has arrived.
According to Forbes, Ford has reinvented parking. With the introduction of its Keep Out Zone option, it enables drivers to quickly determine whether spaces can accommodate their F-Series platforms. Bolstered by a 360-degree high-definition camera, this function scans the surrounding area and gauges height, width, and length. It then compares those dimensions to those of the 2017 Raptor and determines whether a reversal should be attempted:
Should a space prove too narrow, yellow gridlines will warn of impending collisions (either with surrounding cars or the curb).
Should a space prove adequately sized, the 2017 F-150 Raptor will then utilize sensors to automatically guide drivers inside.
With this, F-Series fans can avoid those unfortunate accidents. Parking is finally simple in Seattle.
