Delphi Provides Advanced Collision Warning System For European Fords

TROY, Mich., Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Delphi Corp. announced that it will provide its Forewarn(R) Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning (with audible and visible warnings) and Collision Mitigation (by pre-charging the braking system) for Ford of Europe's all-new Galaxy and S-MAX family vehicles. Ford will market the optional system to customers as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Forward Alert (FA).

"We are very excited that Ford is taking this step to add even more safety to their new vehicles," said Rainer Hermeling, Delphi director of European customer region. "Delphi's Forewarn safety systems help give drivers more time to react to help avoid accidents."

Delphi's Forewarn Smart Cruise Control measures the distance and relative speed of the vehicle ahead using a radar sensor located in the front of the vehicle.

When Smart Cruise Control is engaged, it uses throttle control and limited braking to adjust vehicle speed to maintain a set time gap between itself and the vehicle in front of it (adjustable up to 2.5 seconds). This reduces the need to manually accelerate or decelerate with changes in traffic flow. If the lane ahead is empty, the vehicle maintains its cruising speed.

Delphi's Collision Warning System gives an audible and visible alert to help warn the driver should the driver get too close to a vehicle when cruise is disengaged. In addition, the Ford system's Forward Alert feature will pre- charge the brakes to help stop the vehicle as the driver gets closer to a potential collision.

Delphi introduced Smart Cruise Control in 1999 on the Jaguar XK.
