It's called Feel the View, and it lets blind people get an idea of what's outside the vehicle window.
Ford's "Feel The View" prototype converts pictures to vibrations that can be transmitted to a window allowing the blind to "see" outside the vehicle. At the press of a button the system takes an image of the current view which is then converted into black and white.
"We seek to make people's lives better and this was a fantastic opportunity to help blind passengers experience a great aspect of driving, said Marco Alù Saffi of Ford of Italy". It does this in a clever way using vibrations on the glass. That vibration allows the passenger to touch the scene and build the landscape in their mind that other passengers are looking at.
Ford Motor Co.'s investing big in mobility ventures, but it's latest "mobility" innovation named "Feel The View" may be among its most impressive. "The technology is advanced, but the concept is simple - from rolling hills to mountain ranges, views make any road trip memorable".
Each shade of gray on the window vibrates at a different intensity, allowing blind passengers to visualize the landscape through touch.
It's possible the system has been created as part of the ongoing development of driverless vehicle technology, but regardless of how it has come about, it would be a shame if it wasn't made widely available in some form in the not-too-distant future.
Called Feel The View, it was dreamed up by Ford's Italian division in partnership with Aedo, a tech start-up that designs devices for the visually impaired.
