Ford Smart Lane-Keeping Bed

Ford Europe has unveiled a “Lane-Keeping Bed” that ensures partners always have equal amounts of sleeping space. The idea was inspired by the driver-assist technology that prevents unintentional drifting in new models like the 2019 Ford Ranger.

As demonstrated in the video below, pressure sensors detect when an active dreamer strays to the opposite side of the mattress and triggers an integrated conveyor belt that puts them back where they belong.

Like Ford’s noise-cancelling dog kennel, the Lane-Keeping Bed is only a prototype in the company’s “Interventions” series of innovations that extend beyond the car industry.
