Cory and Ben Break Down The Mach-E’s ADAS

SAE J3016 Levels of Driving Automation

In our latest video, Cory and Ben go over Mach-E’s Advanced Driver Assistance System, or ADAS for short.

Ben starts off by explaining that the ADAS version that Munro’s vehicle has is the Co-pilot 360 system, which is not yet a hands-free driving system, but when the updates come out it will be upgradeable to the BlueCruise capability.

From there Ben discusses the edge-of-roads camera systems that detect where the edge of the drivable space is in various environments including dirt roads or construction zones. This camera system also has blind spot assistance and intersection assist helping you to prevent lane changing into a vehicle in your blind spot as well as helping to better navigate intersections. The ADAS accomplishes all of this with 5 radar and a camera system including an ifrared camera which Ben also explains in more detail.

Ben then pulls up a chart from the SAE which describes the different levels of autonomous driving and describes that Mach-E is at Level 2 autonomy. He also explains that some level 3 vehicles exist, however, most of the ADAS systems that have been approved are Level 2.

From there Cory explains differences we have found between the Ford Mach-E and other vehicles we have analyzed, specifically Tesla as well as why Tesla has made certain choices from a business standpoint.
