Future Ford Vehicles May Offer Curfew System

Ford Motor Co. has filed a patent outlining an idea for a system that may be used in future Ford vehicles to ensure younger drivers aren’t out past their imposed curfew. "It accomplishes this by using geofencing and a processor to determine if the teen is out past their curfew, and if they are, it reports this information to a parent or guardian, as well as whether or not the vehicle is located within a geofenced area," per Ford Authority. "If the latter proves to be the case, the system would be able to send vehicle travel history info to parents and/or guardians, and can also determine if the young driver will make it back to the desired location before their curfew ends, based on vehicle speed and navigation data."
