Ford Envisions A Backup For A Car’s Sensors

Ford filed for a new patent that adds redundancy to highly automated vehicles.

The idea is that with cars already loaded with a plethora of sensors including cameras and radar, self-driving cars (Level 5 Vehicles) will need more back-up if system failure occurs. 

This is the intent of Ford’s new patent application. So when a car’s sensors are failing or producing errors, the vehicle will have an onboard sensor suite as a fail-safe substitute. 

It’s a very interesting concept, yet a mass market self-driving car phenomenon is likely a decade or more in the future.
