satalliteThanks to the Ford Motor Co. and Auburn University, our cars might soon be equipped with a futuristic GPS system that can predict and help avoid car accidents before they happen. The way this will work is that the car’s stability system will communicate with a GPS satellite and depending on the speed and direction of a car, the road ahead and current conditions the system will calculate whether an accident is probable. If so, the GPS satellite will communicate with the car and activate the car’s stability control system to help prevent the accident. This $4 million dollar breakthrough project will quite possibly revolutionize driving safety.
