Ford introduces new high-tech security system in cars and trucks
DETROIT – To you, it might look like a simple construction site seen in the video above, workers and their vehicles and equipment sitting unattended on a cool, sunny afternoon.
For a thief, however, it’s a charming, abandoned heist buffet and with billions lost every year for guys like the guy looking at the contents of the pickup bed seen in the video above.
Events such as those mentioned Ford to develop a better idea for stopping onlookers, called Canopy.
Ford has partnered with ADT Security Surveillance Company to create a new company called Canopy that will do all of this. The idea gets bigger as these cameras become more common.
Canopy seeks to connect vehicles in the area, in this case Fords, to cameras inside and outside cars attached to the ADT surveillance system.
They will use other technologies like sensors and artificial intelligence to avoid confusing a bird in a tree with a criminal to avoid false alarms.
Mike Flatt of Clinton Township works at an auto shop and told Local 4 he liked the new invention.
“I like that, whatever could maybe, your insurance would go down, I don’t know,” Flatt said.
This is an excellent thought. However, the system would likely require a subscription for monitoring.
Bob Mauro from Township of Macomb also think the new invention is appropriate.
“I think it’s a good idea because we have to keep an eye on things,” Mauro said. “You can’t trust everyone anymore.”
