If you are looking to take a road map for this summer then you have a great chance to travel with Ford Motor. This is because recently Google and Ford motor company have joined to make it easy for you to find your location while driving from your home.

Dearborn, Michigan based auto mobile company has declared that they have a plan to install and add Google Maps to the Ford vehicle communication systems. They also declared that they have a plan to install this system in Linchin Mercury brand vehicle.

The Google maps update, dubbed Send to Sync was designed to enable you to send Google maps and directions from the computers or smart phones directly to your vehicles. And it is expected that the Google Maps equipped with Sync will be available in new models to be released in 2010 and 2011 from 1 July. Director of Ford Van Dagens said that a customer can decide the destination from the home and can map it. It means that you are telling your car where you want to go. This helps you to drive your car by keeping your eyes on road and adds more safety.

Many organizations have already been working for a long time to add the new computer aided driving abilities to vehicles. MIT declared in last October that the scientists working there are trying to develop a robot named as Affective Intelligent Driving Agent. According to them, this robot will drive the car instead of humans and help the people to drive safely on the road. It will avoid the traffic jams and it will be also help to find the cheapest gas while driving towards the destination.

In fall of 2007, Nissan showed off a Robot agent at the Tokyo Motor Show. This robot agent was designed to sit on the dash board of the car. This robot was using a built in camera for the detection of driver’s facial signs of fatigue or stress. This agent was programmed to suggest if the driver should take a break or not.  IT Support
