Ford is developing a self-driving self-driving system using a smartphone app. To do this, you just need to tilt your mobile in the right direction…
Future autonomous vehicles will be robust enough to get rid of the steering wheel. However, what if a person wants to take control? Ford decided to develop a special smartphone app for this case. The patented system provides for two modes of car control at once.
The first mimics the mechanics of tilting a rudder by transmitting accelerometer and gyroscope data to the device to steer the front wheels. In this case, actions are performed on an intuitive level. The second mode offers to control the car with a finger, which the driver must rotate the steering wheel on the screen..

Full control is not necessary in each of the options. The car will be able to control acceleration, braking, or both processes at once, leaving the possibility of independent choice of the direction of movement. This feature can be very useful when changing lanes or driving through private areas..
It is not known exactly when it will be necessary to resolve the issue of protection against theft and minimize the delay in the response of the mechanics. Most likely, the company’s specialists are already working on this, and in the near future we will hear about a new concept car with such functions..
Unlike Ford, Renault decided to focus on the styling of future self-driving cars, following this example of the luxury electric vehicle EZ-ULTIMO.
